The Group on Earth Observations (GEO) is turning Earth observation data and information into knowledge for action. GEO is a partnership of more than 100 national governments and in excess of 100 Participating Organizations
that envisions a future where decisions and actions for the benefit of humankind are informed by coordinated, comprehensive and sustained Earth observations.
If you aren’t able to join us live, please note that all sessions will be published online on our
YouTube Channel after the Live Stream. I
would like to thank all GEO staff and colleagues for their great work and efforts for organising GEO Symposium 2020 and making it available for the benefit of everyone.
For example, Earth observations play a major role in helping countries achieve the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the associated Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Earth observations are used
for monitoring and reporting on the SDG targets and indicators, and helps countries to develop policies, track progress, make informed decisions and implement change. GEO promotes the inclusion of Earth observation data in the methodologies that are used to
measure and ultimately achieve the SDGs. Details at https://www.georeportonimpact.org/report-on-impact-sdgs
