English title: Regional capacity building for IMS station managers and operators in French-speaking countries in Africa

This panel discusses operational strategies and challenges faced by managers and operators of International Monitoring System stations in French-speaking countries in Africa. The objective is to strengthen the capabilities of operators in order overcome the challenges encountered in their countries.
Admittedly, the hurdles confronted by station operators and managers may differ from one country to another or even between station locations. Yet there may be common challenges for which experience exchange and synergies could offer solutions. One of the questions that will be addressed by the panel is how to initiate new operational strategies to improve the activities of station managers and operators in the region. Such strategies could focus on various elements such as, for example, digital connectivity, energy supply, equipment transportation, the security context. It could also investigate synergies between National Data Centres (NDC) in the region as a mean to strengthen capabilities of the stakeholders and the operation of IMS stations.
The panel will be conducted in French, with experienced station managers and operators from French-speaking countries in Africa, some of them also staff of NDCs.
