GEOGLAM

The CEOS Ad Hoc Working Group on GEOGLAM

geoglam logoThe Group on Earth Observations (GEO) Global Agricultural Monitoring (GEOGLAM) initiative aims to support agricultural production estimates through the use of Earth observations. GEOGLAM was developed in response to the Group of 20 (G20) Agricultural Ministers’ concern about market volatility for the world’s major crops. The initiative’s goal is to strengthen the international community’s capacity to produce and disseminate relevant, timely, and accurate forecasts of agricultural production at national, regional, and global scales through the use of Earth observations.

The first version of the CEOS Acquisition Strategy for GEOGLAM was endorsed with a phasing approach to echo the phases from the GEOGLAM Implementation Plan.
