Earth Observation Applications and Global Policy Frameworks (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


The effective use of best available Earth Observation data and information, from both remotely sensed and in-situ platforms, as well as the sharing of knowledge, experiences, and lessons learned among countries is essential to respond to the global agreements on climate, disaster and sustainability. Further, synergies among programs, as well as key partnerships and coordination mechanisms across agreements, are vital to promote a more integrated approach and alignment of efforts, and to support the development of well-informed policies and national leadership on all these frameworks.

Volume highlights include:

- Encompasses several examples of successful Earth Observation uses in support of a more interconnected approach across sustainable development, disaster risk reduction, and climate action

- Presents featured case studies aiming to enable the sharing of sound, EO-based, scientific methods and tools, and the associated challenges, lessons learned, and opportunities for further action

- Promotes coherence across the various global agreements in climate, disasters and sustainability

- Helps identify additional opportunities for countries to engage toward building a sustainable, climate resilient, and risk informed future

- Discusses interlinkages among natural and man-made disasters, climate change, and sustainable development, providing concrete examples of successful Earth observation (EO) applications, methods, and technologies to help countries monitor, measure, and report progress on global policy frameworks including the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, and the Paris Climate Agreement

- Shows plans to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including ending poverty and hunger in all their forms, requires a holistic approach that aims to also tackle the threats posed by climate change as well as natural and man-made hazards

Earth Observation Applications and Global Policy Frameworks is a comprehensive volume useful for academicians, students, researchers and scientists in government agencies like NASA, and policy makers.
