Geospatial Information and Earth Observations: Supporting Official Statistics in Monitoring the SDGs (Side event to the 47th Session of the Statistical Commission)
7 Mar 2016 -  This Side Event aims to answer this question and explore the use of geospatial and Earth observation data inputs into the targets and indicators of the SDGs. It will also demonstrate how such data could be part of a comprehensive and coordinated national statistical system to monitor the state of the Earth, and to deliver timely information necessary to citizens, organizations and governments to build accountability and make good, evidenced-based decisions. Finally, through Member State case studies, experts will highlight good practices and success stories that can lead us in the right direction for a coordinated and integrated approach over the coming 15 years.
