2. Background

International Academy of Astronautics (IAA) was founded in Stockholm on August 16, 1960. Since that time, IAA has brought together the world's foremost experts in the disciplines of astronautics on a regular basis to recognize the accomplishments of their peers, to explore and discuss cutting-edge issues in space research and technology, and to provide direction and guidance in the non-military uses of space and the ongoing exploration of the solar system. The purposes of the IAA, as stated in the Academy's statutes are:
-To foster the development of astronautics for peaceful purposes,
-To recognize individuals who have distinguished themselves in a branch of science or technology related to astronautics,
-To provide a program through which the membership can contribute to international endeavors and cooperation in the advancement of aerospace science, in cooperation with national science organizations, NGOs, CIGs, or engineering academies.
International Global Monitoring Aerospace System (IGMASS),
IGMASS Project is to create the “System of Systems”, that integrate both existing and future local, national, regional, and international space remote sensing communication to relay weather and navigation systems (or allocated data and organizational resources), as well as appropriate air-born and ground-based facilities, including specialized infrastructure for global forecasting and early warning about natural and man-made disasters from Earth or space origin. The IAA -IGMASS Project provides a unique opportunity to unify efforts of the world community to develop a new joint strategy of peaceful space exploration, which is focused on providing secure, risk free economy and sustainable development of humanity in the 21st century. The development and use of these technologies provides another great opportunity of expanding inter-regional partnership in the area of disaster mitigation and management. The International Global Aerospace System of Systems concept was officially approved by participants of the First International Specialized Symposium “Space and Global Security of Humanity” held in Limassol, Cyprus, on November,2-4,2009.This scientific forum was a major stage in practical promotion of the IGMASS initiative, which enjoyed an active support of the International Academy of Astronautics and the world participating community. It passed a preliminary multistage scientific approbation at a series of international forums under the United Nations auspices and was approved by distinguished scientists and experts from leading space powers. Information and organizational assistance in advocating the IGMASS project is provided by the Russian Federal Space Agency. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation provides political support to the project according to the Russian foreign policy guidelines to promote the development of international cooperation in peaceful space exploration for global security and sustainable development. The implementation of the project in the ACP region will help protect the lives and health of millions of people, save financial and material resources, develop scientific, technical and technological potentials of space rocket industries of participating countries. IAA –IGMASS project offers a reliable tool to decrease global and regional risks and repel threats of the current transition period from industrial to information society and it is imperative for the global community to formulate in the nearest future a detailed organization and international legal base for project implementation so that it is used to gradually pool information, navigation, and telecom resources of all countries into “common planetary information security space”-global emergencies monitoring and forecasting.  On the UN level the IGMASS was officially presented at the 47th session of the Scientific and Technical subcommittee of the United Nations on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space held in Vienna on February, 8-1 9.2010 (UN document A/AC.105/958 of 11.03.2010). The session drew the attention of the world community to the IGMASS Project, as well as cooperation prospects for its implementation under the aegis of the United Nations and its involved institutions. The documents provided, in particular, for drafting and signing of five memorandums of understanding with the leaderships of UN-OOSA, GEOSS, ISPRP as well as experts from more than 40 countries of all continents. Many of them expressed readiness to join the “International Committee for IGMASS Project Implementation”, and a special task force research and GLOCECOHADIM Cameroon is a member on elimination of natural calamity and disasters aftermath. IAA –IGMASS Project is to counter natural calamities and emergencies at global level and its pilot phase in Africa, Caribbean and Pacific countries is a road map into a safe and secure future for all humanity.
The Global Centre for Compliance, Hazards and Disaster Management, (GLOCECOHADIM ) was created in  2001 and registered with the Government of Cameroon on the 3rd of July 2003 with the objectives of promoting SMEs,  mitigating disasters using space applications and building landscapes, livelihood  and communities in a sustainable manner.

The Ceremony was chaired by the United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, Mr. Jan England, and hosted by the Deputy Mayor of Bonn, Mr. Ulrich Hauschild. The crystal trophy and a cheque of 40,000 USD were delivered on that occasion to the Laureate  2003, Treasurer of the Global Centre for Compliance, Hazards  and Disaster Management (GLOCECOHADIM), in order to reward  the long-term commitment and dedication to the issue of disaster risk reduction, and for preparing the local community for disasters, in particular by strengthening public awareness on environmentally-friendly practices and their importance in mitigating disaster risk and engaging in advocacy activities, promoting the supply and distribution chain in various businesses, the elderly issues and human rights.
