Satellite EO for DRR in international development cooperation.
Wednesday, Dec 02, UTC 16:00 to 16:55
|This session is focused on appoaches proposed to improve access and use of satellite EO to better understand and manage risks, in particular hydromet and geohazard risks. It is based on the framework of the collaboration between International Financial Insititutions and the European EO sector through the European Space Agency (ESA). Methods and services have been implemented with a view to address user awareness, acceptance and adoption on a large scale basis. Today’s EO missions such as the Sentinel missions of the Copernicus programme of the European Union provide global and repeat observations that can achieve a great impact in the context of the SDGs in general and considering the impacts of natural hazards in particular. ESA will share experience and views about how satellite EO can be mainstreamed in international development projects looking at Disaster Risk Reduction.|
