Capacity Building

 

Introduction

Building capacity, as well as sustaining and enhancing existing capacity, is essential for developing the competencies of GEO Members and Participating Organizations in the effective use of Earth observations for responding to societal challenges and addressing sustainable development issues.

The capacity building activities in GEO aims to assist developed and developing countries and regions in increasing their technical and human capacity to acquire, share, store, maintain and fully utilize Earth observation data and information in the decision-making process; demonstrate solutions, disseminate best practices showcasing the value of Earth observations and promote the engagement of institutional users worldwide.

Strengthen cooperation at regional and national level by identifying country-specific opportunities to develop Earth observation plans, Spatial Data Infrastructures, as necessary, and establishing national GEO structures

Coordination of capacity building in the GEO Capacity building coordination of activities is undertaken by a Task Team", then reproduce the table that is under the WP section for CBC Foundational Task. In the members table, please indicate "Co-Chair" next to Mark Noort, Freek van der Meer and Nancy Searby.
