GEO-XIII Plenary Side Event: Conservation Actions aided by Satellite Remote Sensing


Back to GEO-XIII outcomes page


Guyra Paraguay


The view of Earth from space has provided us with powerful information from imagery, from the inspiring blue marble to disquieting images of progressive deforestation and habitat degradation. Combining satellite remote sensing with in situ measurements has resulted in an unprecedented understanding of the Earth and conservation actions which have impacted biodiversity.

Case studies to be previously selected will be presented in this side-event to generate among the GEO community members to collectively identify needs and articulate questions that still need to be addressed, in order for participating members to better do their jobs. Case studies are planned to be led by those closely involved in projects so as to provide firsthand accounts of the design and implementation of conservation projects based on the use of geotechnologies.
