Награды Группы по наблюдениям за Землей в области устойчивого развития (GEO SDG) 2020

 

 

The Group on Earth Observations Sustainable Development Goals (GEO SDG) Awards 2020 recognizes the productivity, innovation, novelty, and exemplary efforts in the use of Earth observations to support sustainable development.

Launched last year, this annual award is presented to those making an impact on the 17 global goals put forth by the United Nations, as indicated by progress toward achieving a SDG Target and/or producing, or reporting on, a SDG Indicator.

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development provides a universal set of priorities to use as a blueprint of action for people, the planet, and prosperity. Earth observations, geospatial data, and the information they provide play insightful roles in monitoring targets, tracking progress, as well as helping nations and stakeholders make informed decisions toward achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
