Group on Earth bservations Group on Earth bservations SGUR GEO-2 Baveno (I) November Presented by Ezio Bussoletti Draft GEO Framework, Chapter 4/5 USER REQUIREMENTS & OUTREACH SG co-chairs: Stephen Briggs, CEOS Ezio Bussoletti, Italian Ministry of the Environment Giorgio Cesari, Italian Agency for Environment - APAT David Kendall, Canadian Space Agency Ewen MacCallum, MET Office, UK
Group on Earth bservations Group on Earth bservations SGUR GEO-2 Baveno (I) November URSG Scope: Develop for the 10-year implementation plan an effective mechanisms to identify high priorities requirements for current and future EO Starting from Analysing usersneeds for EO data and information at: local, national, regional, global levels through a user-driven rather than technologically-driven approach Scope
Group on Earth bservations Group on Earth bservations SGUR GEO-2 Baveno (I) November Approach Main Users categories identification Key topics selection Analysis of existing inventories of major user requirements (international, national) : current status and gaps. How to tackle the gaps Definition of mechanisms for effective user-involvement Outreach mechanisms
Group on Earth bservations Group on Earth bservations SGUR GEO-2 Baveno (I) November Main Users Categories policy makers at both national and international levels agencies and institutions responsible for policy implementation and enforcement at global, regional, national and local levels agencies and institutions responsible for co-ordination of national and international observation systems (operational) scientific communities who provide inputs into policy formulation (universities and national and international research agencies and centres Industry and commercial sectors - often the target of policy decisions; NGOs the general public
Group on Earth bservations Group on Earth bservations SGUR GEO-2 Baveno (I) November Existing Inventories (1) GCOS, IGOS-P, WMO, GOOS, WRCP analysis = sound knowledge of data requirements on current modelling and on necessary improvement on observations systems (satellite and in situ) needs at global and at regional or local scales for research and climate change communities, weather forecast (extreme events), support convention on climate IGOS- P provide also analysis on continuity and knowledge challenges for oceans, water, geohazards, carbon, coral reefs, coastal zone, atmospheric chemistry Preliminary review – to be completed with additional contributions
Group on Earth bservations Group on Earth bservations SGUR GEO-2 Baveno (I) November Inventories (2) GMES - a joint programme of the EC and ESA = Includes analysis of users requirements (information, data, modelling) Through ad hoc inventories (e.g. BICEPS) Users directly involved in EU Projects (5th and 6th EC Framework Programmes) and ESA GMES Service Elements Programme Environment (climate change, air quality, marine environment, coastal zones, soil management, land use., inland water management) and Natural and anthropogenic hazards (forest fires, oil spills, flood, eutrophication) and Security (Food, humanitarian aid). GMES : main contribution of Europe to GEO
Group on Earth bservations Group on Earth bservations SGUR GEO-2 Baveno (I) November Inventories (3) National Inventories (from members of the subgroup) : Others will be added Canada (e.g. specific operational need with radar: ice monitoring) France (Agriculture, forestry, tropical zones and oceans, soil protection, creation of a GEO mirror group for UR) Italy (National requirements for environmental monitoring, surveillance and risk management: fires, flood, landslides, oilspills, in connection with the COSMO-SkyMed programme) Sweden (e.g. specific request / forest management) US (e.g. human health, earthquakes, water quality, water resources, oceans and coastal zone, weather and climate, land, air quality, space weather and atmosphere).

Group on Earth bservations Group on Earth bservations SGUR GEO-2 Baveno (I) November User Involvement mechanisms through Build on approach already used by WMO, IGOS-P, GCOS, GOOS, etc, for example the WMO process : RRR (Rolling Review of Requirements) on annual basis. involvement of standardisation organisations and certification bodies (e.g. ISO). structured and permanent dialogue between all stakeholders involved in information production and use: along the chain of production of information and between the sectors and disciplines, as proposed in GMES for ensuring that user needs are met.
