"Increasing the uptake of satellite-based environmental information in the International Financing Institutions' regional and global programs."
Satellite Earth Observation (EO) technology has major potential to inform and facilitate international development work in a globally consistent manner. Since 2008, the European Space Agency (ESA) has worked closely together with the International Financing Institutions (IFIs) and their client countries to harness the benefits of EO in their operations and resources management.
EO4SD – Earth Observation for Sustainable Development – is an ESA initiative that aims to achieve an increase in the uptake of satellite-based environmental information in the IFI's regional and global programs. This webinar series focuses on the Marine Resources, Disaster Risk Reduction, Climate Resilience, and Fragility-Conflict-Security component of the initiative through the presentation of several successful use cases followed by discussions on lessons and insights in order to inform the way forward with the new phase of the partnership – and in particular, its core component, the Global Development Assistance program.
