14th EUMETSAT User Forum in Africa
14-16 September 2021
Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania

Welcome to the EUMETSAT User Forum in Africa website!

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and after consultation with the Tanzania Meteorological Authority, we have decided to postpone the 14th EUMETSAT User Forum in Africa, initially planned to take place from 14 to 18 September 2020.

The new dates for this 14th Forum are: 14 - 16 September 2021

The purpose of the EUMETSAT User Forum in Africa is to sustain the well established dialogue between EUMETSAT and the African user community, in particular the National Meteorological Services and their regional centres. The overall objective was to facilitate the use of EUMETSAT satellite data throughout the continent. The Forum also provided the opportunity to identify actions and initiatives that could be taken by EUMETSAT to meet the requirements of its African partners.

The EUMETSAT User Forum in Africa is organised every two years. The forum is organised in collaboration with the National Meteorological Service of the host country, together with relevant governmental institutions and ministries who also act as hosts.
