EO services industry supporting the UN Agenda 2030
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted by the United Nations, with the aim of monitoring progress, informing policies and ensuring accountability. Earth Observation can support several targets and indicators in the UN SDG framework by providing accurate and reliable data on the state of natural resources, biodiversity, atmosphere, oceans, etc. This actionable information helps on the SDGs implementation role, monitoring, reporting and the facilitation and shaping of reporting methods, policy and tools.
Within the EARSC portal, we present a section identifying EO services from private sector providers that help support goals and targets and ultimately with the monitoring and reporting of the SDGs.
The eowiki/SDGs highlights cases where EO technologies are contributing to a set of current targets covering the social and economic dimensions of sustainable development where companies provide EO derived data and services and can make an important contribution towards the Agenda 2030 showing the potential of EO across the span of the social, economic, and environmental goals.
