Sustainable Management of Wetlands for strengthening food security and resilience of ecosystems in West Africa (GDZHAO). The Support Program for Monitoring of Environment and Security (GMES & Africa) is an initiative co-funded by the European Commission and the Commission of the African Union.
The CSE together with CERSGIS and 6 other institutions are carrying out program to specifically address African needs for water-related services, natural resources, marine and coastal areas and to provide solutions to environmental management, mitigation of climate change and to civil security and to develop and promote a portfolio of products and services based on the exploitation of EO data (in the fields of water, vegetation and soil) to improve the knowledge and decision making on wetlands west Africa in a sustainable management for food security and strengthening the resilience of communities and ecosystems.Learn More
Operating as a regional hub, SERVIR West Africa promotes collaboration among technical institutions in the region, leveraging their respective strengths. It also works across the region to increase awareness, and improve access to and the capacity to use geospatial information.
In this initial phase, the program focuses on four countries: Burkina Faso, Ghana, Niger and Senegal. The program works with decision-makers to provide user-tailored information servicesLearn More
We have well structured training programs available on request to institutions interested in having their staff trained to acquire skills in GIS in Ghana and the West African sub-region.

We have a series of well structured training programs available on request to institutions interested in having their staff trained to acquire skills in GIS and Remote sensing in Ghana and the West African at large.
Who We Are
The Centre for Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Services started as a Remote Sensing Application Laboratory in 1990 at the Department of Geography and Resource Development, University of Ghana, Legon. The Remote Sensing Application Unit developed its staff capacity to provide contractual Remote Sensing and GIS services to its clients. In 2000, the status of the Remote Sensing Application Unit changed to Centre for Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Services (CERSGIS). The change of name meant change of strategic focus from a funded establishment to a self-sustaining Non-profit Organization that focused on providing geographic information and remote sensing services for sustainable development planning and management of resources..
