Satellites watch over the Earth continuously, helping to monitor, understand, model, predict and act on climate change and its related challenges. EO data can be easily combined with in situ environmental measurements, along with artificial intelligence, to deliver actionable information to support decision-making for a neutral future.
Space data has an untapped potential to help achieve a better understanding through modelling, allowing predictive forecasts, and supporting policy formulation, implementation, monitoring and evaluation.
PROTECT consortium aims at steering the uptake of innovative, fit-for-purpose and cost-effective EO based climate services by sharing relevant state of the art of the climate services market and allowing potential public procurers to better assess climate services’ benefits and potential.
The domains we are focusing on for the EO climate services areas it follows:
- Energy and utilities
- Sustainable urban communities
- Marine and coastal environment
- Agriculture, forestry, and other land uses
- Security and civil protection
