Final Report - VGT4AFRICA (Distribution of VEGETATION data in Africa through EUMETCAST)

Project ID: 12302
Funded under: FP6-AEROSPACE

Abstract

This is the periodic activity report for 2007 of the Vgt4Africa project which responded to the European Commission's intention to promote the involvement of developing countries in the Global monitoring for environment and security (GMES) initiative. It aimed to provide Earth observation (EO) experts in African countries with data and products needed to monitor the density and vigour of green vegetation.

This document provides an overview of the Eumetcast stations receiving these EO data products, which nearly doubled within 2007, as well as the training and outreach activities promoting the use of these data. It closes with a number of activities carrying on the work of the Vgt4Africa project, such as the Geoland and Devcocast projects funded under the Seventh Framework Programme.
