Published on

A public presentation of MESA Program took place in Brussels at DEVCO Info-point on Wednesday 19th of June. This event was organized at the initiative of the DEVCO Unit in charge of Intra ACP assistance and prepared by EUMETSAT and the Joint Research Center (JRC). MESA Program is a pan-African Program financed under Intra ACP /EDF funds and coordinated by the African Union Commission (AUC). The MESA Program addresses the need for improved environmental monitoring towards sustainable management of natural resources in five regions of sub-Saharan Africa, namely CEMAC, ECOWAS, IGAD, IOC and SADC, involving 48 countries. The MESA Program builds on investment made under previous Intra ACP / EDF funded assistance program AMESD and aims to support of the broader GMES & Africa Initiative in positioning Africa to fully benefit from the progress in Space Earth Observation science
This 19th of June presentation of MESA Program counted with the active participation of representatives from African Union Commission, African Regional Economic Communities like IGAD, SADC, IOC and CEMAC as well as from ACP secretariat.

  • PUMA has been a big step for Earth Observation in Africa Data were received by African Users in real time (equal footing with European users) Mainly dedicated to meteorology
  • Map representing a 3 -days synthesis of Chlorophyll-a concentration based on MODIS observations for SWIO PML Ocean Colour (Chl-a) 3day composite at 1km ,NetCDF format, 5 files Retrieve data from PML FTP site, transform NetCDF into GeoTiff. Each of the 5 regions is super-imposed to give final GeoTiff map for the SWIO region. Product 1.1.1 (daily chlorophyll-a maps), Product 1.1.2 (daily sea surface temperature map) are generated in Version 1 on the e-Station
  • We need to contact Francois for that SK – I will also talk to Hans Bonekamp. The title is weird - crc
  • AMESD is an ongoing programme, managed by the African Union Commission: We know who are the AUC, we know how to work with them Extend the use of Earth Observation data to environmental application
  • We are elaborating our activities, data and products, in answer to needs expressed by users in Africa – no data push, but real and structured demand We have a structured user Community in Africa, that can elaborate clear user needs.
