The book gives an overview of the space sector in African countries from a legal and policy point of view, analysing in particular how the African Union's Space Policy and Strategy (ASPS) is implemented in each country and highlighting the various existing space activities per country. Against this backdrop the ASPS is interrogated, its policy goals identified and its strategy discussed.
Moreover, on-going regional cooperation programs, the continent's leading space actors and their roles, the existing space related regional fora and organisations are looked into. Reflections are made on some of the initiatives undertaken in Africa, including the African Leadership Conference on Space Science and Technology for Sustainable Development (ALC), the Regional African Satellite Communications Organisation (RASCOM), and the African Resource Management Satellite Constellation (ARMS-C). The book provides substantial information on space capacities in African countries.
