Regional Centre for Mapping of Resources for Development (RCMRD)***
About the Company
The Regional Centre for Mapping of Resources for Development (RCMRD), previously known as Regional Centre for Services in Surveying, Mapping and Remote Sensing (RCSSMRS) was established in Nairobi, Kenya in 1975 under the auspices of the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) and the then Organization of African Unity (OAU). Its founder members are Kenya, Uganda, Somalia, Tanzania and Malawi and the Government of the Republic of Kenya hosts it. It is a non-profit intergovernmental organization and currently has 15 contracting member States, namely: Botswana, Comoros, Ethiopia, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mauritius, Namibia, Somalia, South Africa Sudan, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia.

The Centre is also vigorously involved in the development of new techniques and applications for solving problems related to information communication technology, utility and facility management strategies, resource management, training of professionals and decision makers on the use of geo-information.
During the last twenty-five years, significant developments have taken place in the technology and methodology of data gathering, processing, storage, and dissemination of natural resource, environmental and development information. As a result, the member States have acquired or are in the process of acquiring the new advanced technologies for which they require initiation and back stopping by the Centre.
Therefore, in order to facilitate appropriate response by the Centre to the rapidly changing technologies as well as the socio-economic and operational needs of the member States, the Governing Council (GC) of the Centre commissioned the review of the Centre’s agreement, its mandate, its relationship with member governments and partners as well as decrees which guide its policies.
The review team prepared a document entitled "Centre’s 2020 Vision" which was adopted by the Governing Council in December 1997. The team recommended that the Centre should be transformed into an active partner in development rather than a passive service Centre. To implement this, they recommended the restructuring of the Centre.
The restructuring of the Centre was undertaken in 2000 and the outcome of this process led to formulation of new mission and objectives:
