Fifth Asia-Oceania workshop aims to accelerate action for local needs

Blog / June 15, 2022

The fifth Asia-Oceania Group on Earth Observations (AOGEO) Workshop will take place in Beijing and online from June 15-17, 2022.

The theme this year is Harmony and Empowerment—Accelerate Action and Development for Local Needs. Participants will discuss the progress of the Integrated Priority Study (IPS) project, which is responding to regional demand for Earth observation data to support climate change mitigation and adaptation, disaster risk reduction and sustainable development. The agenda also features cases studies and technical advances in addressing urban resilience and human settlements, emerging technical exchange and practice from young people and the outcomes of capacity building efforts.

The workshop, which is organized by National Remote Sensing Center of China (NRSCC), with support from the GEO Secretariat and the Aerospace Information Research Institute (AIR) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) aims to further develop the AOGEO community, ensure swift uptake of the latest GEO trends and encourage the use of Earth observations (EO) for local impact.

The IPS session will highlight progress made and experiences from the use of EO applications in IPS activities in the Himalayan Mountains region and Pacific Islands region. It will also investigate the obstacles and solutions to progressing IPS.

Task Group (TG) Nexus sessions will provide a platform for AOGEO TG participants and related working groups to share progress on Earth observations and their applications, and exchange ideas about how to bring capacity building, urban resilience and human settlements, and youth engagement, into all aspects of AOGEO work.

AOGEO is responsible for coordinating different stakeholders and activities that focus on regional needs and promoting GEO engagement priorities in the Asia-Oceania region. The AOGEO workshop (formerly the International AOGEOSS Conference) provides a forum for Asia-Oceania region to exchange scientific and technical views on Earth observations and their applications, and for the global community to hear about the progress of AOGEO.

The workshop is open to anyone interested in EO and their application. Please  register on the 5th AOGEO Workshop website.
