Conference Objective

The objective of this conference is to spur exchange of ideas on fast tracking application of earth observation and geo-spatial technologies in development decision making. In the last century, the world has made tremendous strides in innovations and developments (agricultural revolution, medicine, transport, communication, water & sanitation etc) that have improved the quality of human life. This has seen the world population grow from around 1.6 billion to over 7 billion people in 100 years.

The growth in human population has also brought enormous challenges on competition for resources such as land for settlement, food, water, energy and a clean environment. The next biggest challenge for humanity is to manage growth and development in a sustainable manner, using reliable and objective information to monitor changes on our planet.

All are welcome to attend and participate.
