ACP COMPENDIUM ON RISK KNOWLEDGE (THE)



 The ACP Compendium of Risk Knowledge presents the start-of-the-art in disaster risk reduction (DRR) knowledge concerning ACP countries. More importantly, it highlights valuable DRR efforts -categorized under hazards, vulnerability and capacity in the three regions made in and by ACP member states that merit continued or heightened support and replication. https://ec.europa.eu/europeaid/sites/devco/files/acp-compendium-risk-2015_en.pdf (92 pages, PDF, 55 Mo)

AFRICAN SPACE POLICY 


 

The African Space Policy is the first in a set of instruments that will help us to formalize Africa’ Space Programme. This policy provides the guiding principles for a sustainable and fully effective space programme that will serve the needs of the African continent.

AFRICAN SPACE STRATEGY 


 

This Strategy provides a strategic framework for developing and operationalizing continental-level space initiatives. It clearly spells out the strategic goals and objectives of a long-term collective space vision for the continent. The Strategy hinges on the African Space Policy, which provides a guiding framework, for both the African public and private sectors, on the underlying principles to be adopted en route to a formal African space Programme.

AFRICAN UNION AGENDA 2063 


 

On the occasion of the golden jubilee (May 2013) of the Organization of African Unity (OAU)/African Union (AU), the continent re-dedicated herself to the attainment of the Pan African Vision of an integrated, prosperous and peaceful Africa, driven by its own citizens, representing a dynamic force in the international arena.  

The Golden Jubilee Summit of the Union directed the African Union Commission (AUC), supported by the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) Planning and Coordinating Agency (NPCA), the African Development Bank (AfDB) and the UN Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA), to prepare a continental 50-year agenda through a people-driven process outlining the Africa We Want, namely Agenda 2063.

GMES AND AFRICA COMMUNICATION AND ENGAGEMENT STRATEGY


 

 

This Strategy elucidates the corporate and business purpose of communicating about GMES and Africa, and identifies the functional messages, channels, platforms and tools appropriate for publicizing the programme and reaching out to its audiences. Also at the centre of the model is a strategic plot on stakeholder engagement which underlines ownership, results and impact.  It is the Commission’s intent and hope that the Strategy ultimately serves as a policy and operational guide for the host of Consortia seized with the successful implementation of GMES and Africa across the five regions of the continent.

GMES AND AFRICA CORPORATE BROCHURE



 

This publication is a foundational blueprint pro-viding insightful information into the GMES and Africa framework – from its conceptualization to its design and implementation. I therefore invite you to dig deep into the document, to understand and imbibe the context of a program intended to optimize the use of Earth Observation for the Africa We Want.

GMES AND AFRICA TRAINING STRATEGY




 

GMES & Africa Training Strategy addresses the need to develop critical skills and expertise in EO applications, strengthen space-based and in-situ infrastructural capacities of technical institutions in Africa, develop user-centric EO services, and foster communication to ensure effective use of services and products that maximize EO benefits. It also captures the intensification of research clouds at the regional level to strengthen data exploitation skills, and capacity utilization to harness the intellectual capital of trained experts.
