The Human Planet Initiative is proud to announce the launch of the Atlas of the Human Planet 2020. This edition collects 100 case studies that use Global Human Settlement Layer data sets in thematic areas of Disaster Risk Management, Urbanisation, Development, Environment and Sustainability. A number of case studies address issues requested by the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda and related International Framework Agreements.
The Atlas is a deliverable of the GEO Human Planet Initiative and the JRC and provides case studies in thematic areas closely related to other GEO activities including EO4SDG, GEO Mountains, GEO VENER and ArcticGEOSS.
The virtual launch event takes place on January 21, 2021, 3pm CET and it will feature presentations delivered by authors of the showcases. The second part of the event features a panel discussion where European and international policymakers will discuss the relevance and challenges in global open geoformation on settlements for policy and action and the road ahead.
