In July 2013 European Space Agency and the World Bank have entered into the second phase of collaboration. Within this framework ESA will extend its capacity (financing and technical supervision) to produce and deliver EO information services to support World Bank projects.
When the World Bank first teamed up with the European Space Agency to use earth observation satellites to look at the impact of climate change and natural disasters on land in the North Africa coastal cities of Tunis and Alexandria, UDR’s Anthony Bigio had an “aha” moment of discovery.
In an increasingly uncertain world, one thing is for sure: companies must adapt and evolve to stay successful and thrive. IFC Sustainability Summit brought together private companies to discuss pressing sustainability issues, including how Earth Observation can help address them.
