Programme Development

OSS relies on voluntary contributions from members to meet operating expenses. Thanks to a light structure, OSS can allocate the bulk of its financial resources to projects implemented in the Sahara-Sahel region. 

OSS implementes projects on behalf of donor, a bilateral or multilateral cooperation agencies in more than 30 countries in Africa in the following areas :

  • Environmental monitoring with expertise in remote sensing and land degradation neutrality measures,
  • Joint and integrated management of water resources, with specialization on transboundary aquifers
  • Adaptation and resilience of ecosystems, natural resources and people to climate change,
  • Reducing risks related to natural disasters and
  • Transition to the green economy.
