Recognising the need to improve our understanding of the Earth system and enhance our ability for informed decision-making for the benefit of our planet and the sustainability of our societies, over 150 governments and leading international organisations are participating in the Group on Earth Observations, or GEO, to coordinate the construction of a Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) by the year 2015. This series of brochures provides a snapshot of the process developed by the GEO to build the GEOSS taking advantage of the international framework of cooperation and of the common vision to share and integrate information with a view to serving nine Societal Benefit Areas. Examples of contributions from European and the European Commission-funded projects contributing to specific Societal Benefit Areas or to the GEOSS Building Blocks are presented in each thematic brochure.
