Future Prospects for Satellite Environmental Information in Support of Development Aid Activities
September 11, 2018 - September 12, 2018
This is a 2-day consultation meeting with the purpose of identifying future actions necessary to grow the use of environmental information derived from satellites in the Development Aid sector.
This sector represents a significant and exciting opportunity to put satellite Earth Observation (EO) technology to practical use in addressing some of the global societal challenges of today; Food, Water, Energy, Climate being just a few of the topics involved.
This consultation builds on an initial workshop held in ESRIN on 16 Jan 2018 with a number of European Aid Agencies & Ministries and is aimed at including more Aid Agencies/Ministries from across Europe. It will focus more closely on the future actions and planning required to grow the use of satellite-derived environmental information in development aid.
