|Abstract:||The Regional Centre for Training in Aerospace Surveys (RECTAS) was established in 1972 under the auspices of the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) as a joint Institution of African countries currently constituted by Benin, Burkina, Cameroon, Ghana, Mali, Niger, Nigeria (host country) and Senegal. RECTAS’ vision is to be a leading centre of excellence providing one-stop solution for quality geospatial science training, education and research and critical capacity for sustainable development in Africa. The mission is to contribute to rapid sustainable development of member states in particular and Africa in general, through the development of critical capacity for timely delivery and responsible use of appropriate geospatial information. In this presentation the strategies and synergy of accomplishing the objectives, vision and mission of the Centre as well as prospects of collaborative research are discussed.|
