[2-DAY WORKSHOP] Urban Development From Space: Impacts of Earth Observation on Development

The ESA EO4SD Urban Project lead by GAF AG and implemented with a Consortium of European Service Providers has organized with the World Bank a final Workshop in Washington DC from 21-22 January 2020 with the objective to review the achievements of the project, and use the lessons learned to forge a way forward with the Bank to ensure a sustainability to the co-operation.

The Director for the Global Practice on Urban, Disaster Risk Management, Resilience & Land (GPURL) – Dr. S. Wahba will open the Workshop and several of the Bank Experts will provide feedback on the utility of the EO4SD Urban geo-spatial data for their urban development programmes. This high-level event is evidence of the strong relations that have been developed between the Bank, the European SPs and ESA in the past 3.5 years, which is envisaged to continue in the years ahead.”
