RCMRD’s mission is to promote sustainable development using earth observation and thus SDG’s. RCMRD is an inter-governmental organization established in 1975 (Nairobi, Kenya) and currently has 20 Contracting Member States in the Eastern and Southern Africa Regions.

RCMRD hosted the GODAN AgriGIS ThinkTank in 2016 and have been doing lot of excellent capacity development activities across Africa.

RCMRD is serving geospatial data to the Eastern and Southern Africa region. SERVIR-Eastern and Southern Africa developed a geoportal based on an open source Content Management System for GIS (GeoNode – http://geonode.org  ). The geoportal is intended to be used as a regional Spatial Data Infrastructure portal for Eastern and Southern Africa, serving all RCMRD member states. It will be linked to other regional and country GIS data portals to publicize it and enhance its usefulness within the region.
