The application of Earth Observation (EO) datasets for Sustainable Development is a fast-growing field. EO technologies and innovations are constantly evolving, and contributing to the delivery of sustainable, economic and societal benefit to developing countries, helping them meet their Sustainable Development Goals. There is great potential to build on the unique strengths that the space sector has in terms of services and technology to deliver sustainable development objectives, especially in data-sparse regions of the globe, and realising this potential is crucial. The scientific and socio-economic benefits from remote sensing data applications are limitless. Especially in developing nations, where there is a need to bridge the gap between existing technologies and operational applications, EO technology can help enhance the capability to monitor the Earth’s vital resources, and to support the planning, design, operation, and management processes of various sectors.

This session invites submissions from researchers and practitioners, whose work with EO technologies provides the information needed to confront key sustainable development challenges, spanning a whole range of themes such as: disaster response and early warning systems, water resources, agriculture, air and water quality, deforestation, land-use change, urban development, renewable energy and health.
