The AUC launches the Call for Proposals for the implementation of the Global Monitoring for environment and Security (GMES) and Africa Programme.

The programme is an important vector for the implementation of the Joint Africa-EU Strategy as well as Africa Space Policy and Strategy, and aligned to Aspiration 7 of the African Union Agenda 2063.

The deadline for the submission of proposals is August 21th, 2017.
