The Group On Earth Observations (GEO) is a partnership of over 100 national governments and 100 Participating Organisations that envision a future in which coordinated, comprehensive, and long-term Earth observations influence choices and actions for the benefit of humanity.
GEO is a one-of-a-kind global network that connects government agencies, academic and research institutions, data providers, businesses, engineers, scientists, and experts to develop innovative solutions to global challenges that cross national and disciplinary boundaries in an era of exponential data growth, human development, and climate change.
The unprecedented global collaboration of experts helps identify gaps and reduce duplication in the areas of sustainable development and sound environmental management.
GEO Blue Planet is the ocean and coastal arm of GEO and is keen on contributing for long lasting Earth observations that will influence the decision-making process and bring benefits for all society.
GEO Blue Planet works closely with the GEO community on ocean and coastal related activities to inform priorities and identifying opportunities for collaboration across GEO activities, initiatives, and regional GEOs.
