Environment technologies: EU-South Africa cooperation

The European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) and South Africa’s National Space Agency (SANSA) signed on 6 December a cooperation agreement to better exploit remote sensing technologies for monitoring atmospheric, terrestrial and marine environments.
The objective of the JRC-SANSA agreement is to work together on a better understanding of the dynamics and evolution of the natural environment through optimal exploitation of  Earth observation data and to develop technologies and services that support not only national policies but also international issues and policies for disaster risk reduction, early warning and emergency management.
The signature took place in the context of a high-level meeting on scientific collaboration to improve disaster anticipation and resilience organised at the initiative of Commissioner Máire Geoghegan-Quinn and attended by senior officials of the Commission, the Carnegie group countries (G8+5 sience ministers), the World Bank and the United Nations.
