Co-designing Capacity Development
15:30-17:00 CEST   09:30-11:00 EDT   23:30-01:00(+1) AEST

In order to ensure that a demand-driven and impact-oriented Capacity Development methodology is applied within the GEO Work Programme, there is an expressed need to also strengthen the capacities and capabilities. This session is aimed to share examples on how the GEO Flagships, Initiatives and Regional GEO’s organise and develop their capacity development programme in a co-design process and how this contributes to a results-oriented GEOSS.
