Belmont Forum Pathways to Sustainability: Learn more in the GEO Informational Webinar
News / 15 September 2020
The Group on Earth Observations (GEO) has partnered to support the Belmont Forum call on “Transdisciplinary Research for Pathways to Sustainability.” More information on the call can be found here.
As part of ongoing resource mobilisation efforts, GEO is offering an in-kind contribution for those applicants belonging to GEO Members (currently 111 UN Member States). In particular, winning projects will have access to our network, resources, and stakeholders of selected GEO Work Programme activities with the aim to integrate, support, or scale-up the work being undertaken by such GEO activities, including the GEO Biodiversity Observation Network (GEO BON), Global Forest Observation Initiative (GFOI), GEO Global Agricultural Monitoring Initiative (GEOGLAM), GEO Land Degradation Neutrality Initiative (GEO-LDN), and Earth Observation for the Sustainable Development Goals (EO4SDG). The GEO Secretariat will help liaise with the winning projects that qualify for the GEO resources.
This webinar will provide an opportunity for those submitting proposals to connect with the GEO resources for the Pathways call. As well there will be time to learn more about relevant GEO programmes that could be leveraged to achieve the call objective. Participation in the webinar is not required to propose to the Pathways to Sustainability call but is encouraged, particularly for those wishing to leverage GEO resources.
The webinar will take place on Wednesday, September 30th from 14h00-16h00 CEST using a BlueJeans platform.

All proposals should be submitted to bfgo.org by October 31, 2020.
