> Dear GEO community,
> The AfriGEOSS Week 2018 will take place from 22 to 29 June 2018. The 3rd AfriGEOSS Symposium will be held during AfriGEOSS Week, from 26 to 28 June 2018 with some training sessions taking place beforehand.
> The Symposium is hosted by the Agence Gabonaise d'Etudes et d'Observations Spatiales (AGEOS) and the theme is "Building smarter Earth observations to support sustainable development policies".
> The objectives include:
> Engage with end users, particularly policy and decision makers, to understand information needs for evidence-based policy-making and raise awareness on the value of Earth observations in meeting those needs;
> Showcase the use of Earth observations in implementing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and development policies at national and regional levels;
> Reinforce dialogue on Earth observations priorities in Africa and promote or build synergies with ongoing and planned Earth observations initiatives at the national, regional and international levels - to draw linkages with the implementation of the African Space Policy according to development policies;
> Strengthen regional and national thematic Earth observations coordination mechanisms to broaden African participation in the Group on Earth Observations and AfriGEOSS activities; and
> Review the implementation of the 2017 AfriGEOSS Symposium outcomes and contributions, and establish a mechanism of Monitoring and Evaluation for the future.
> For more information and registration visit the AfriGEOSS Week website <http://www.earthobservations.org/me_201806_afrigeoss.php> or contact symposium at afrigeoss.org <mailto:symposium at afrigeoss.org>.
