GEO is an intergovernmental partnership that works to improve the availability, access, understanding and use of Earth observations for the benefit of society.
How we work
GEO’s member governments, participating organizations and associates work together to develop and implement Earth observations projects and initiatives that address global environmental and societal challenges. GEO’s global engagement priorities include supporting the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Paris Agreement on Climate and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction. However, other work is also undertaken with respect to the Aichi Targets, the Convention on Biological Diversity, the Minamata Convention and the New Urban Agenda through the activities of the GEO Work Programme.
