14th EUMETSAT User Forum in Africa
6-7 October 2021

14th EUMETSAT User Forum in Africa will be held on 6-7 October 2021, virtually.

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.

After postponing the 14th EUMETSAT User Forum in Africa twice due to the on-going pandemic situation, we have decided to hold it on-line, as a virtual Forum. The Plenary sessions of the 14th EUMETSAT User Forum in Africa will be held virtually on 6-7 October 2021.
