Save the date: GEO Climate Policy and Finance Workshop, 21-23 September 2021
News / 12 May 2021
The theme of the GEO Climate Policy and Finance Workshop is “Earth observations for climate ambition” and reflects the GEO focus on the role of Earth observations in supporting national climate action and the overall Global Stocktake process under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Paris Agreement.
The main objective of the workshop is to present the results of the GEO Climate Change Working Group (CC-WG) mapping of climate-related activities in the GEO Work Programme carried out in 2021. Additionally, other ongoing results of the CC-WG, and to foster collaboration with key Earth observation and climate partners. The workshop also aims to explore the role of Earth observation to support investment decisions for climate resilience and Nature-based Solutions, measure the level of readiness in the GEO community, and expand relevant collaborations with the sustainable finance sector.
Ultimately, the workshop will help GEO prepare for the upcoming 26th Conference of the Parties (COP26) to the UNFCCC, to be held in Glasgow, Scotland, in November 2021.
The workshop will be held as a virtual event from 21 to 23 September 2021. The three-day event will include two days dedicated to Earth observations in support of climate policy and one day dedicated to Earth observations as a basis for climate finance decisions.
Registration will open in the summer. If you have any questions, please contact Sara Venturini, the Climate Coordinator at GEO Secretariat (firstname.lastname@example.org).
