Post by rcmrd » Fri May 19, 2017 11:55 am

The Regional Centre for Mapping of Resources for Development (RCMRD) was established in Nairobi, Kenya in 1975 under the auspices of the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA). It is a non-profit intergovernmental organization and currently has twenty (20) contracting member States, namely: Botswana, Burundi, Comoros, Ethiopia, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mauritius, Namibia, Rwanda, Seychelles, Somalia, South Africa, South Sudan, Sudan, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

RCMRD’s mission is to promote sustainable development in the member States through generation, application, and dissemination of geo-information and allied ICT technologies, products, and services. This feeds into the Centre’s vision of being a premier Centre of excellence in the provision of geo-information for sustainable development in the member States and beyond.

The RCMRD Core mandates are:
  • Project Implementation – Environment, Natural Resources Management, Disaster Management, Infrastructure and Service Provision, Urban Mapping and Planning & Good Governance.
  • Advisory Services – Development of National Policies and Strategies, Geo-information Standards etc.
  • Capacity Development – Training in basic and applied programs
  • Research and Development – AFREF, Rapid LCM, Tsetse spread prediction, Crop yield estimation, Water resources management, Land Degradation and Habitat conservation & Disaster management etc.
  • Servicing and Calibration of Mapping Equipment.
  • Data and Information Dissemination – Acquisition, usage, sharing and discovery
In line with RCMRD mandate of providing advisory services, RCMRD-University discussion forum is meant to bridge information flow gap between University students and RCMRD Scientist. Questions and discussions related to various Geo-spatial domains are encouraged in this platform: Remote sensing, GIS, Surveying and Land management, and Data.

RCMRD discussion forum is coordinated by SERVIR E&SA which is a joint initiative of United States Agency for International Development (USAID), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and Regional Center for Mapping of Resources for Development (RCMRD) to help developing countries improve environmental management and resilience to climate change by strengthening the capacity of governments and other key stakeholders to integrate Earth Observation information and geospatial technologies into development decision-making.

How would i go about getting the material from your research and development? The study on the tsetse fly prediction seems interesting, curious to see how the projected map looks like.
