The EUMETSAT User Forum in Africa serves to sustain the well established dialogue between EUMETSAT and the African user community, in particular the National Meteorological Services and their regional centres. Taking place every two years, the Forum mainly works to facilitate the use of EUMETSAT satellite data throughout the continent. The Forum also provides opportunities to identify actions and initiatives that could be taken by EUMETSAT to meet the requirements of its African partners.

Session 4 of the Forum, that will take place on Wednesday, 14 September in the afternoon will focus on the Blue Economy. Addressing marine and great lake satellite applications, the session will discuss the access and use of the Copernicus Sentinel-3, the OSI-SAF and the Copernicus Marine Service.
