You are cordially invited to the 9th Conference of the African Association of Remote Sensing of the Environment - AARSE2012. As you might be aware the AARSE 2012 Conference will take place from October 29 to November 2012 in El jadida, Morocco. This 9th session will represent a major event in the long series of internationally recognized AARSE conferences. AARSE 2012 takes place at a strategic moment, when Africa faces major pressing issues such as climate change impact, water scarcity, energy shortage, environmental stresses and food crisis, which affect citizens, business and the community at large. On all these challenges, Earth Observation can play a greater role in making up factual, precise and updated information for better decision-making.
