The year 2015 has witnessed a redirection and shift in focus of the global development agenda. This is underpinned in new global strategic formulations and re-arrangements exemplified by the shift from MDG’s to SDG’s, the transition from the Hyogo Framework of Actions to the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (2015-2030), the climate change agreements among others.

These reflect global solidarity and commitment to address the contemporary and futuristic pressing global development challenges covering sustainability, resilience, poverty, conflict, urbanization, resource utilization among others.   

Cognizant of the increasing connectivity and complexity, remote sensing technology offers a great opportunity for timely, novel and smart solutions to address the above challenges. Consequently, the 11th AARSE2016 conference is well placed to trigger intellectual discussions and technological options to address the development challenges especially to benefit Africa.

I therefore take this opportunity to invite you to be part of this conference, which will contribute to reshaping Africa’s development trajectory. Whether you are a scientist, exhibitor, sponsor or just an attendee, you will realize great benefits in participating in the AARSE2016 conference in Kampala.

On behalf of LOC, we pledge our total commitment to serve you to the best of our abilities to ensure that your time in Kampala is memorable.
