Africa focuses on GMES
Date:12/11/2007

The Lisbon Declaration on GMES and Africa has been adopted at a meeting of organisations and governmental European and African bodies and entities under the aegis of the Portuguese Presidency of the Council of the European Union in Lisbon, Portugal.

Cooperation between Africa and Europe is not a novelty for ESA. "What topic is be
