GEO Week 2022, hosted by the Group on Earth Observations, will convene in Accra, Ghana amid rapid technological change and mounting environmental challenges. As eyes turn to Africa for COP 27, GEO Week will showcase how global collaboration is accelerating the use of Earth observations as evidence for local impact, both in Africa and around the world.
D4DInsights is pleased to co-host two sessions at GEO Week this year. We hope to see you there.
Digital Earth - Empowering Access and Use of EO Data Globally
Monday, 31 October 2022
2 - 3.30pm
Digital Earth programs seek to increase the value and impact of global Earth observation data by providing a free and open data infrastructure. This will empower governments and other sectors to make better decisions and drive action on issues related to climate change, food security, water resources, disaster management and more. It will also support countries towards achieving their national development priorities and the Sustainable Development Goals. Digital Earth has made progress including continental implementations in Australia and Africa, and developing programs in the Pacific and Americas.
