At the 9th International African Association of Remote Sensing of the Environment (AARSE) Conference held at El Jadida, Morocco from 29th October to 2nd November 2012, two special sessions were dedicated to the TIGER initiative. During the conference, delegates from 40 countries released jointly a declaration addressed to the African Union and African Governments. The declaration recognises the importance and success of continued long-term collaboration between European Space Agency and African scientists within the TIGER initiative, and invites to support the dedicated activities in the TIGER Capacity Building Facility and within the new TIGER NET project as essential component to prepare the African water resources expert for the exploitation of African National satellites and the upcoming SENTINEL satellite fleet of the European Space Agency.
