Abstract: The African Monitoring of the Environment for Sustainable Development (AMESD) programme is a partnership between the European Union and the African Union Commission. It extends the operational use of Earth Observation to environmental and climate monitoring applications. There is an increasing need for environmental information for the implementation of international cooperation policies such as aid and development. Satellites provide an operational and cost-effective way to obtain systematic information on the land condition at the continental and regional scale in Africa.
