GEO-XIII Plenary Side Event: GEOGLOWS: A Water Initiative to address the Earth’s needs for Water Sustainability


Back to GEO-XIII outcomes page




GEOGLOWS has grown from its humble beginnings as a federal initiative to a global movement for addressing water issues using Earth observations. It builts upon earlier water activities in GEO and projects newly initiated in Latin America and elsewhere. It is exploring opportunities related to SDGs, Water-Energy-Food Nexus, urban water issues, and wetlands and biodiversity to ensure its long-term relevance and influence.

This session will be of interest to those GEO Members tracking the development of water applications of Earth observations and those who deal with water issues in their countries and would like to engage with the GEO Water community to explore ways in which they can work together with GEOGLOWS to solve their problems.
