5 Page 5 What’s new? Unique value defined Strategic Objecives refined GEOSS better described Core Functions refined; targets & indicators added Implementing Mechanisms consolidated SBAs revised Work Programme developed further; Resources indicative scale; specific contributions Governance Programme Board added Legal status analyzed

6 Page 6 Unique Value GEO must clarify its unique value proposition improve the quality, timeliness, range and availability of Earth observations facilitate the development of efficient, sustainable solutions to environmental societal challenges broker combinations of actors to understand Earth system processes and respond to societal challenges GEO does more than build GEOSS Uniqueness of GEO is in its convening power
