The GEO Work Programme 2023-2025
The GEO Work Programme is the primary instrument used by GEO to facilitate collaboration among its Members, Participating Organizations, GEO Associates, and other partners on activities to realize GEO’s Mission and Vision.
The activities that comprise the GEO Work Programme are conceived, planned and implemented by teams of researchers, technical experts, policy analysts, commercial sector representatives, and many other stakeholders to address information needs in particular domains for which Earth observations are critical. In most of these activities, the teams work to develop Earth observation-based applications, products and services to support decisions by defined sets of users.
GEO Work Programme activities are largely funded through in-kind contributions from GEO Members, Participating Organizations and Associates on a voluntary, best-efforts basis, supplemented by financial contributions where possible. A small number of activities, the GEO Foundational Tasks, are implemented in part by the GEO Secretariat through resources contributed by GEO Members to the GEO Trust Fund.
Each GEO Work Programme covers a fixed three-year period. The GEO Work Programme 2023-2025 was recently approved by the GEO-18 Plenary in Ghana on 3 November 2022.
