During this meeting, the group also made final plans for the GEO Data Technology Workshop to be held in Vienna, Austria from April 23-25, 2019. The workshop will focus on exploring how to best make available Earth observations-based knowledge for international policy frameworks, including the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Sendai Framework on Disaster Risk Reduction and the Paris Climate Agreement.
