2nd Asia-Oceania GEO Workshop
The Asia-Oceania GEO (AOGEO), previously AOGEOSS, is a regional Initiative of the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) co-led by Australia, China, Japan and Korea, with contribution from more than 10 countries in the region. AOGEO aims to establish an effective cooperation framework at the regional level and promote the Earth observation capacity of Asia-Oceania countries to confront the challenges which pose a risk to the attainment of sustainable development. The objectives of AOGEO include:
- Engage and coordinate as appropriate stakeholders, partners and sponsors working together on Earth observation activities in the Asia-Oceania region;
- Utilize infrastructure, resources and capacity to develop integrated and sustained observations;
- Investigate user needs and address gaps on implementation of GEOSS and develop technological approaches;
- Provide a platform for Asia-Oceania countries to advance data sharing and services;
- Cultivate regional collaboration network by providing technical support and knowledge sharing;
- Support decision-making and regional sustainable development with earth observation information.
