Webinar: Tools for climate-smart decision making | 23 April

ESA & the Space Climate Observatory present developing climate-smart decision tools

ESA has joined with SCO to host a community webinar on 23 April 2021 (13:30-15:00 CET) to share progress in the development of tools that use Earth observations towards climate-smart decision making.

As a major provider of systematic and global Earth observations, the European Space Agency (ESA) works closely with a range of stakeholders to strengthen the scientific understanding and projection of climate and address the consequences of future change.

The webinar will be an opportunity to welcome Indonesia and Malta, which have just joined the SCO community, and to discover three international projects labelled in 2021 (China, Mexico, Morocco). As a highlight, ESA will present additional initiatives from the joint ESA-Future Earth programme that may meet the SCO criteria.

The projects to be showcased include:

  • Cholera outbreaks under a warming climate
  • Ecosystem services for climate-resilient city planning
  • Enhancing adaptation and resilience along West Africa’s coasts
  • Satellite Monitoring for Post Storm Beach Recovery on Australia's Gold Coast

The European Space Agency (ESA) is Europe's gateway to space. Its mission is to shape the development of European space capabilities, ensuring that these investments benefit European and global citizens. ESA’s Earth Observation Programme, funded by ESA Member States, supports climate science and monitoring at a significant financial level. ESA is a member of the SCO since its creation in 2019.

The joint ESA-Future Earth programme aims to facilitate the development and uptake of Earth observation data by the research networks of the international Future Earth network. The partnership includes seed funding to stimulate new collaborations around climate data provided by ESA.
