This year is one of the most important with major milestones linked to global policy agendas. There is the COP26 to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, there is also the COP15 to the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity, the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development and the UN Decade of Ecosystem Restoration. These all bring a new set of challenges and opportunities for the international Earth Observations community.
During GEO Week 2021, the many activities of the GEO work programme that address these areas will be presented. Notably through the lens of nexus thinking to highlight how the use of Earth Observations in different sectors contributes to these efforts and why integration across thematic areas is essential.
