Since being founded, GEO-GNOME
has sought to connect and facilitate access to diverse sources of mountain observation data and information regarding drivers, conditions and trends in biophysical and socio-economic processes of change at different scales.
This workshop aims to refine and bring the GEO-GNOME work plan to fruition during 2018-2019. The workshop aims to review the GEO-GNOME work plan with active participants of the GEO-GNOME effort, as well as others identified as having key expertise and knowledge on the subject matter. The workshop also provides an opportunity to revisit key questions and the utility of GEO-GNOME in providing policy-relevant information in mountain regions and global contexts such as Paris Agreement, Sendai Framework and SDGs. Finally, the opportunity to identify a new research agenda to support a scientific basis for earth observation in mountains is also encouraged and envisaged.
This workshop is therefore convened to:
1. Provide an update on the GEO Work Programme 2017-2019 and its priorities;
2. Inform and update on GEO-GNOME’s status and proposed restructure of its work plan;
3. Co-define and coordinate next steps to implement the GEO-GNOME work plan; and
4. Foster existing and establish new connections and networks of collaboration to exchange ideas and proposals for a new research agenda on mountain observations.
