Session 7.2

Earth observation to protect the planet and the people

In partnership with the JRC

The European Commission's Joint Research Centre, Copernicus Global Land, FAO, DG Environment and the United Nations Environment Programme join forces in an interactive discussion on Earth Observation to protect biodiversity. Scientists and policy makers will deliver short presentations on trailblazing research and then host an engaging “fishbowl” discussion. Audiences can jump into the conversation with an expert panel as they exchange viewpoints on the future of science to support biodiversity.
This discussion will contain critical research findings by the European Commission and look into the future of satellite and in-situ data for policymaking. Join this session for an insider’s perspective on how our efforts directly enable and inform SDGs, Commission priorities, and the Habitat Directive. Gain insight on how our services are building a knowledge base for biodiversity that integrates Earth Observation data. And explore how our free, open, and analysis-ready data can help you and others to safeguard our planet and people.
