BRAGMA – Bridging Actions for GMES and AFRICA

The “GMES and Africa” initiative establishes a long term partnership between European and African stakeholders, accordingly to the Lisbon Declaration, to work together on the development and implementation of Earth Observation (EO) applications based on African requirements. The process is implemented in the wide context of the Africa-EU partnership aiming for sustainable development and increment of scientific cooperation. “GMES and Africa” strengthens Africa’s capacity and ownership of EO activities and acknowledges the importance of past and present programs, recognizing the need to coordinate actions to avoid duplication, increase synergies and enhance complementarities.

“Bridging Actions for GMES & Africa” (BRAGMA) will support and facilitate the necessary dialogue to implement the process, through improved coordination and adequate information flow and dissemination strengthening the partnership.
