This virtual series aims to engage a multi-sector audience in discussions on how space technologies and geospatial applications contribute to better outcomes in critical fields around the world, such as energy, food security, poverty and governance. Held twice a month, the events will bring together stakeholders working in companies, non-profits, academia, and government to highlight initiatives taken to progress toward the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) using a truly transformative multi-stakeholder approach. The series will highlight real-world case studies as well as opportunities and challenges for expanding the use of satellite data in efforts to achieve the SDGs. This series seeks to look at ongoing work by a variety of actors, with a special focus on development and humanitarian projects.
The first webinar on #SDG2: Zero Hunger took place on 24 June. The panelists featured from the World Food Programme (WFP), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Group on Earth Observations (GEO), FluroSat, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
