The 2017-2019 GEO Work Programme

 

The 2017-2019 GEO Work Programme, accepted by the Thirteenth GEO Plenary in Saint Petersburg, Russia, is the primary coordination and planning instrument to assist GEO with the selection and prioritization of its activities to achieve its Vision, Mission and Strategic Objectives.

The Work Programme consists of GEO Community Activities, GEO Initiatives, GEO Flagships and GEO Foundational tasks, collectively known as the GEO Implementation Mechanisms.

The Work Programme is proposed by the GEO Secretariat based on input from GEO members, Participating Organizations and the GEO Community. The Programme Board further refines the Work Programme for acceptance by Plenary.

The GEO 2016-2025 Strategic Plan: implementing GEOSS

The Strategic Plan, approved by the GEO-XII Plenary and endorsed by the GEO Mexico City Ministerial Declaration in November 2015, provides the framework for GEO to operate over the next decade, ensuring it can respond to the needs of society.

The Plan is structured in two parts.

Part A outlines the Strategy, affirming the Vision and Mission of GEO, highlighting the value of GEO’s unique capabilities, and widening the engagement with developing countries. It establishes three Strategic Objectives – Advocate, Engage, Deliver – to guide the work of GEO over the next decade.

Part B, the Implementation Plan, outlines how GEO will implement its Vision and Mission over the next decade, including evolving the GEOSS, continuing to promote the GEOSS Data Sharing and Management Principles, and focusing on engagement.

A Reference Document accompanies the Strategic Plan, providing additional details on aspects of the Implementation Plan.

 

The 2016 Work Programme

A multi-annual GEO Work Programme, accepted by Plenary, will constitute the primary coordination and planning instrument to assist GEO with the selection and prioritization of its activities.

As explicitly indicated in the GEO 2016-2025 Strategic Plan: implementing GEOSS, the GEO Work Programme for 2016 is of a transitional nature; it bridges the first and the second GEO decades and it covers a year in which GEO will have to ensure continuation of current activities, while defining new priority actions and transitioning to the new implementation mechanisms proposed identified in the Strategic Plan.
