EU Africa cooperation in Earth Observation

Mon 29 October from 11:00 to 12:30 in Room H

The objective of the event was to present H2020 projects (e.g. AfriCultuRes, TWIGA, SWOS, GEOCRADLE, GROUNDTRUTH 2.0) promoting the uptake of EO data in Africa in order to enhance food security, water supply, protection of biodiversity, diversification of the energy resources, and building of a climate resilient society. The event explored reinforcing the participation of those projects in the GEO's multiannual Work Programme in coordination with the initiative GMES in Africa.
