Virtual Event on Earth Observation applications for Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation

March 10 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm EST

Free

Taking urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts” is a crucial goal set forward under Goal 13 – Climate Action as part of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Climate action requires global efforts related to climate change mitigation – reducing the flow of heat-trapping greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, or enhancing the “sinks” that accumulate and store these gases. And climate change adaptation – adjustments in ecological, social, or economic systems in response to actual or expected climatic stimuli and their effects or impacts.

Geospatial data, technologies, and services are essential tools for governments, businesses, and civil society, to better understand and manage our world. Today, these technologies are more critical than ever, as we face global challenges like climate change and truly embrace sustainable practices.

This workshop, organized by WGIC at GeoIgnite 2022 and supported by its Members, will demonstrate the value of Earth observation data, analytics, and insights to provide meaningful and effective solutions for climate action.

WGIC Members joining this workshop are GHGSat, Maxar Technologies, Planet, SatelliteVu, and Satellogic.
