Monitoring of the Environment and Security in Africa (MESA) Holds Workshop

The Monitoring of the Environment and Security in Africa (MESA) held a National Training and Workshop to educate potential, national end-users on the use of Earth Observation data. The data would be used to inform decision makers in the field of environmental resource management on the use of the MESA SADC THEMA products for better environmental management. The training consisted of hands-on computer exercises within a geographic information system (GIS). The workshop aims were to use earth observation with latest cutting edge technologies to protect the environment. The Agency uses near real time technology to monitor fires and thereby aides in managing the environment.

The Environmental Debate Competition is one of the many fora used by the Environmental Management Agency to raise awareness on the most pressing environmental issues amongst high school students. The Agency comes up with a particular theme each year for the students to debate on. This was the 6th edition of the competition since it started in 2010 and it was co-sponsored by United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and the Environmental Management Agency (EMA). The aim of the competition is to foster Environmental Stewardship amongst high school students thereby creating an eco-concious future generation.
