ConnectinGEO aims at “Coordinating an Observation Network of Networks EnCompassing saTellite and IN-situ to fill the Gaps in European Observations.” Full information and the project is available at the ConnectinGeo.net web site.
The web workspace documents the progress of work in four work packages (WPs) of ConnectinGEO. The WPs included here are:
- WP 2: Strategic Goals, Metrics, and Indicators
- WP 3: European Network of Earth Observation Networks
- WP 4: Observations and Essential Variables
- WP 5: Stakeholder and Industry Challenges (Task 5.6: Interdisciplinary Challenge: The Food-Water-Energy Nexus)
- WP 6: Gap Analysis and Priorities
- WP 7: Dissemination, Exploitation and Communication
For WPs 2 and 6, which are led by Tiwah, the work space here is the main web documentation and work area for all tasks in these WPs. For WPs 3 and 7, only those parts Tiwah is leading or contributing to, documentation and work space is available here.
[December 10, 2016] Workshop on SGD Platform: Tiwah supported the organization of the 5th GEOSS Science and Technology Stakeholder Workshop on “Linking the Sustainable Development Goals to Earth Observations, Models and Capacity Building,” which took place at the University of California, Berkeley, Ca, USA, on December 9-10, 2016. See the web page for more information.
[October 8, 2016] Support for SGD Implementation: In an article in ApogeoSpatial, Shelley Jules-Plag and Hans-Peter Plag show that agend-based models and GeoDesign can support the development of policies that foster progress towards the SDGs. The article is available as pdf.
[August 16, 2016] EO and Model Support for SGDs: In an article in the Geospatial World Magazine, Shelley Jules-Plag and Hans-Peter Plag make the case that Earth observations and models are important in supporting policy development for the implementation of the SDGs and for the monitoring of progress towards the associated targets.
[July 15, 2016]: The ConnectinGEO workshop on Gap Analysis and Prioritization will on take place on October 10-11, 2016 at IIASA, Laxenburg, Austria, in collocation with the ENEON Plenary on October 12-13, 2016 and the ConnectinGEO Project meeting on October 13-14, 2016. See event pages for more information.
[June 3, 2016]: ConnectinGEO partners chaired several sessions and provided presentations at GEPW2016. See, e.g., the presentation on the goal-based approach to linking SDGs to EVs developed by ConnectinGEO or the presentation on Earth observation support for the implementation and monitoring of SDGs.
