10 Report on Activities of Regional Center for Mapping of Resources for Development (RCMRD ) Second Meeting of the Committee on Development Information, Science & Technology (COODIST-II) Addis Ababa, Ethiopia 02 – 05 May 011

11 Training: Geoinformation and IT applications, Advisory Services: mainly to member States Project Services: at Local, Regional and Continental levels Research and Development: both applied and fundamental researches Spatial Data: acquisition, archiving and dissemination Early warning and forecast: Disaster early warning (flood, famine, epidemic diseases, etc. ) Engineering Services: Maintenance, repair and calibration of survey and mapping equipments 1. Major Activities of RCMRD

12 2. Management Activities RCMRD held its 7 th Conference of Ministers and 44 th Governing Council Meetings in Cape town, South Africa – Approved a new four years (2011-2014) Strategic Plan – Reviewed the implementation of previous Strategic Plan (2006-2010) – Revised the mission and vision of the Center – Three new countries (Burundi, Seychelles and Rwanda) were admitted as full member States


14 3. Capacity Building Activities Offered short-term training for its member States Offered professional Geoinformation training at RCMRD Training for its Staff members Enhanced data acquisition, processing, and archiving and dissemination capacities through projects, e.g AMESD, SERVIR-Africa Projects Revised the Curriculum for IWRM course Prepared new training courses

15 4. Advisory Services Mainly provided to member States – Disaster Risk Management through GARNET-E – In development of Project Proposals (LMIS projects) – Held National workshops on the Role of Geoinformation in National Development Planning – Establishment of CORS – Establishment of NSDI – Development of Land Policy, Space policy – Land use Land cover Mapping

18 5. Implementation of application projects AMESD (African Monitoring of Environment for Sustainable Development) Project – Land degradation assessment for IGAD countries including Burundi and Rwanda – Three years project funded by EU SERVIR-Africa Project – Build capacities of spatial data processing and interpretation – Make available data and tool to respond to the GEOSS Nine societal benefit areas – Funded by USAID and jointly implemented with NASA GARNET-E Project – Rapid Mapping of Disaster – Capacity building in Disaster Charter Training – Two years project funded by EU GMFS III (Global Monitoring for Food Security) – Crop Acreage mapping methodology development – Crop Yield forecast – Funded by ESA, three years project SSWICH (South Sudan Water Information Clearing House) Project – Develop national capacity in water information management – Develop database on water resources – Funded by Unicief and jointly implemented with ECA

19 6. Disaster Early Warning Flood forecasting and post event mapping system was established Drought Forecasting Rift Valley Fever Forecasting

20 7. Research Activities Tsetse fly distribution and genetic mapping (IAEA funded) Rapid Land Cover Mapping (RLCM) tool development and testing CREST Model development for both flash and stream flood forecasting
