Oct 1993, Dakar (Senegal), at regional conference, to be set up in close consultation with the Governing Board of Mercure and the UN Office for Outer Space Affairs, Vienna (Austria), based at E-XE7552 - United Nations Office at Vienna (UNOV). Meeting of Provisional Governing Board, Dec 1997, Darmstadt (Germany). Project dropped, 1999, due to lack of resources.


Improve collection, transmission, distribution and exchange of information in the areas of health care, agricultural research and development, management of natural resources, environment, education, science and technology, so as to: strengthen capabilities for sustainable development; develop an improved response to humanitarian needs in rural areas; implement a partnership programme with participation of private industry from Africa and Europe; strengthen collaboration among universities and institutes in Africa and between them and their counterparts in Europe and the international community, so as to provide a vehicle for transfer of know-how and technology. To this end: link remote-sensing and environment centres in Africa to acquisition stations and processing and archiving facilities in Europe and Asia for access to data relevant for prediction of drought, flooding and large-scale infestations; provide social and physical scientists and government bodies in Africa with electronic access to databases worldwide; provide facilities for distance learning transmission to rural areas.
