AFRICA GEOSPATIAL PARTNERSHIPS World Geospatial Industry Council


Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) are a mechanism for government to procure and implement public infrastructure and/or services using the resources and expertise of the private sector. There are strong needs and compelling stories for the development and support of Geospatial Infrastructure and Earth Observation Sectors with Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) in Africa. Geospatial Infrastructure is a system of systems that interconnects people, processes and technology. Earth Observation is aerial (manned), drone (unmanned), terrestrial and all satellite data that is used for a variety of applications including the Geospatial Infrastructure Sector. This survey will provide quantitative input for the World Geospatial Industry Council’s continuing focus on Public-Private Geospatial Collaborations: Exploring Potential Partnership Models and will provide input for the next product delivery: Africa Geospatial Partnerships - A How to Guide.
