Earth Observation Applications for the Sustainable Development Goals: GEO Work Programme Efforts and Opportunities for Scaling Successful Methods - recorded

Mon 29 October from 09:00 to 14:00 in Room E

Recording: Watch here!

This side event provided a platform for GEO Work Programme Flagships, Initiatives and Community Activities to showcase specific actions, projects and other relevant activities in support of the U.N. 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The event enabled the sharing of approaches that build on GEO's strengths and demonstrate the essential contribution of Earth observation data and geospatial information to support sustainable development at global, regional, and national levels, and within local communities.

The event addressed some of the following questions:

  • What are examples of successful methods adopted by countries for monitoring and reporting on the SDGs, and how can these be scaled up to enable widespread, sustained use by countries?
  • What are examples of existing, and forthcoming, initiatives, tools, and technologies, aimed to enable greater use of EO and geospatial data for sustainable development?
  • How are the GEO Work Programme activities organize, in coordination with EO4SDG, to further help GEO align its engagement with the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and what are examples of efficient approaches that support the SDGs, targets, and indicators?
