GIZ, the German Cooperation agency, offers IT system to CEMAC for raw materials management
(Ecofin Agency) - The Commission of the Central African Economic and Monetary Community (CEMAC) will receive on 25 January 2017 in Yaoundé an IT and management system as part of the Project to strengthen the governance of raw materials in Central Africa (REMAP/CEMAC) led by the German Cooperation, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ).
This IT system will help CEMAC’s headquarters and country representations, to have rapid access to all information processed in member-States, particularly with regards to the mining industries, GIZ explained. The organisation added: “Apart from training CEMAC personnel on rapidly accessing knowledge processed by the Commission via an innovative IT system, the REMAP project will bring its support to the provision of a server whose technical capacities will enable the storage of large amounts of data”.
REMAP is the result of a master agreement signed in 2008 between the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), and the CEMAC Commission. The missions of the project are, among other things, to help improve the contribution of mining resources to the reduction of poverty, contribute to strengthen transparency and governance of revenues from the mining sector and intensify international cooperation in the oil, gas and mining production sector.
