Around the world, the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) is delivering data and knowledge for coordinated and sustained global action.
The GEO Report on Impact 2016-2019 showcases the global and regional impacts of the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) community. Covering more than 50 activities under the GEO Work Programme, this report includes highlights and impact stories that illustrate GEO’s key contributions.
“Earth observation data is now integrated into strategies and approaches to Disaster Risk Reduction, Climate Adaptation and Mitigation, Sustainable Development and others. GEO is making advances with science-based evidence for policy making in these areas and more,” said Gilberto Camara, GEO Secretariat Director.
Learn how, together with partners, GEO is transforming Earth observations into knowledge and tools for social impact.
“I am proud that the GEO community has leveraged its unique position to foster strategic partnerships to coordinate and contribute to sustainable solutions to global challenges," said Mmboneni Muofhe, Deputy Director General, Technology Innovation at the Department of Science and Innovation, South Africa.
