dc.description.abstract In four decades, Africa will be both the largest market in the world and also the largest construction site in the world because everything remains to be done. However, its development should be focused on an endogenous procedure and be part of an approach that is both sustainable and global and integrate local and traditional cultures. It goes without saying that science and the new technologies are fundamental ingredients of sustainable development. Satellites are and will be increasingly essential tools for resources management and the protection of the environment. The book ‘Sustainable Development in Africa & Satellites – Technologies and Wisdoms’ shows this necessary union between tradition and modernity, between science and knowledge. Illustrating the current growth of awareness of African populations with regard to the challenges of our century, it is a platform for African women and men, for scientists, farmers, artists, for young and old, for all those who are building the future of Africa. Because Africa will be the work of the Africans themselves, first of all through work, good governance, justice and solidarity but not through charity. I am certain that this book will shed new light on the competences, energy and deep-seated solidarity mobilised by Africans at all levels. Their actions form the leaven that will enable united Africa to construct its future. Today, the duty of humanity involves first of all a duty of Africa. There is no viable future without Africa.
