Based on the results of the EU survey “Innovation Procurement of Climate Change services & National Legal Framework” two sets of workshops will take place in March and October 2023.

These two sets of online workshops have been preceded by a general plenary session regarding the challenges in each application domain during the high-level conference in Barcelona. During this session, moderated by CORVERS CEO (Stephan Corvers), the discussions focussed on sustainable and urban communities, in particular on the importance of waste management, which is extremely expensive and usually consists in burying waste, burning waste or transporting waste. Climate services (CS) based on Earth observation (EO) could contribute to provide solutions for these pressing issues which can potentially affect other domains such as Marine and coastal environment and Civil Security and Protection.
