Dear colleagues,

The Group on Earth Observations (GEO) is an intergovernmental partnership that improves the availability, access and use of Earth observations for a sustainable planet. GEO promotes open, coordinated and sustained data sharing and infrastructure for better research, policy making, decisions and action across many disciplines. The GEO community focuses on three global priority engagement areas: the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Paris Agreement, and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction.

The GEO Secretariat and the GEO Progamme Board have launched the process to develop the 2020-2022 GEO Work Programme. You are invited to propose new GEO Flagships, Initiatives or Community Activities. Implementation Plans for the proposed activities should be sent to the GEO Secretariat secretariat at geosec.org<mailto:secretariat at geosec.org> no later than 15 February 2019.  Detailed information and guidance for the preparation of the Implementation Plans may be found at the 2020-2022 GEO Work Programme webpage<https://nceo.us18.list-manage.com/track/click?u=355f73d70ae52077a0c72b022&id=f87b0eaafe&e=6576f730b7> at http://www.earthobservations.org/gwp2020_dev.php


For those new to GEO, the Work Programme consists of GEO Community Activities, GEO Initiatives, GEO Flagships and GEO Foundational tasks, collectively known as the GEO Implementation Mechanisms. You can get an overview idea from the GEO 2017-2019 Work Programme  at http://www.earthobservations.org/geoss_wp.php

I am grateful to get the opportunity  to serve in the GEO Programme Board and I am truly impressed with the amazing work that GEO is doing on global priority engagement areas.

I thank all governments and colleagues for your continued support and commitment to GEO.

Best wishes,
