Earth Information Day 2019 provides an opportunity for Parties and non-Party stakeholders to meet with members of the systematic observation community to discuss the latest activities and exchange information on the state of the global climate system, Earth observation implementation, needs and services.
The event was mandated at SBSTA 50, and its content is guided by previous mandates and submissions. The information and discussions presented may be used to inform negotiations under agenda item 7(b) during SBSTA 51.
Earth Information Day will be open to observers, and webcast. Questions can be submitted via sli.do.
