H2020 ERA-PLANET GEOEssential

Acquirer: European Commission

Project leader from Ukraine: Prof. Nataliia Kussul

Project Coordinator: Anthony Lehmann, Université de Genève, Switzerland

Duration: 01.09.2017 – 31.08.2020

Project Overview

GEOEssential (Essential Variables workflows for resource efficiency and environmental management)  is addressing the need for trusted sources of data and information to monitor the progresses made on environmental conditions towards policy targets. The project will demonstrate the feasibility of Essential Variables across GEO Societal Benefit Areas. It will create cross-thematic workflows to evaluate, predict and monitor natural resources to inform via Earth Observations the Sustainable Development Goals. Existing structures and platforms will be analysed in order to identify substantial gaps and synergies for addressing the needs of environmental policy in agriculture, soil, water, biodiversity, energy, light and raw materials. Solutions for improvements will be provided in cooperation with GEO and Copernicus programmes.
