Abstract: This paper describes two complementary projects. The VGT4Africa project is a R &D project financed by the EC 6th framework Programme for Research and Technological Development whose objective is to bring into operational exploitation prototype EO data processing chains for data coming from the VEGETATION instrument and distribute the derived products to Africa, whereas the AMESD project is a continental-wide project implemented under the aegis of the African Union Commission together with the regional economic groupings of Africa and with the support of the European Development Fund. Its objective is to improve environmental monitoring for the sustainable management of natural resources in Africa, thus making use, i. a. of data provided by the VGT4Africa project.
