Copernicus for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

During this webinar, you will learn what are the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and how Earth Observation can play a key role in providing the necessary information to achieve the goals determined by 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development all UN Member States.

We will use RUS to showcase several applications in which Copernicus data can be used to provide information to decision makers. We will show you how to access the RUS Service and how to download, process, analyse and visualize the free data acquired by the Copernicus satellites.


The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.

Earth observations and derived information have already played key roles in supporting sustainable development. Serving the 2030 Agenda, they can play insightful roles in monitoring targets, planning, tracking progress, and helping nations and other stakeholders make informed decisions, plans, and on-going adjustments that will contribute toward achieving the SDGs.

The Copernicus program, which includes a new family of Earth Observation satellites known as the Sentinels, provides a unique opportunity to derive key environmental information and provide regular updates on their condition at a range of spatial and temporal resolutions.
