Kenya Space Sector Formulation—Phase 2

It is in this phase of the road-map that the Kenya space sector organizational framework is defined. This organizational framework should not only present the constituent stakeholders; but, also elucidate the interaction dynamics between the stakeholders. Consequently, we propose the Kenya space sector organizational chart shown in the schematic below. This initial sector organizational framework […]
