Earth Observation and Sustainable Development Goals – Views from a Decade with the Group on Earth Observations. Panel Discussion on Readiness for a Terrestrial Forecasting System

Enabled by broad, open data policies and practices for the U.S. Landsat Program, and the European suite of Sentinel satellites in the Copernicus Programme, tremendous advances have been made in technologies for global terrestrial observations – permitting analysis of global landscape change that was not possible, heretofore. This Expert Panel reflects how to achieve the United Nation’s SDGs by concerted space activities and how to advance Earth observations to a terrestrial forecasting system.
