UN-SPIDER's Regional Support Office in Nairobi, Kenya - the Regional Centre for Mapping of Resources for Development (RCMRD) - regularly prepares a Spatial Data Infrastructure Newsletter for the African continent on behalf of the Global Spatial Data Infrastructure Association. Spatial Data Infrastructure - Africa (SDI-Africa) is a free, electronic newsletter for people interested in GIS, remote sensing, and data management in Africa. Published monthly since May 2002, it raises awareness and provides useful information to strengthen SDI efforts and support synchronization of regional activities. It touches issues such as humanitarian crises, natural disasters and international cooperations in relation to spatial data. It furthermore displays spatial data infrastructure implementation materials, events and trainings.
