The Climate Change Working Group (CC-WG) is convened to develop and execute a comprehensive GEO climate change action strategy. We strive to advance the use of Earth observations in support of climate adaptation and mitigation. Our actions align with the objectives of the Paris Agreement on climate change.
The CC-WG promotes the GEO climate engagement priority as well as helps turn the goals stated in the Canberra Declaration into practical steps within the GEO Work Programme.
The CC-WG is composed of about 100 members covering a wide range of countries and expertise. We bring together experts from various fields, including government, academia, UN agencies and intergovernmental organisations, NGOs, and the commercial sector.
WHAT WE DO
- Improving the coordination of climate-related activities within the GEO Work Programme
- Supporting countries’ uptake of Earth observation and derived solutions within the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)
- Fostering collaboration with GEO’s partners in the climate domain
