The Regional Centre for Mapping of Resources for Development (RCMRD) hosts SERVIR-Eastern Africa hub which joined the SERVIR Network in 2008. The project’s goal is to increase the ability of African institutions to apply geospatial technologies to improve the region’s resilience to the impacts of climate change and ensure land use management reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
