SDGs-EYES is aimed at boosting the European capacity for monitoring the SDGs based on Copernicus through building a portfolio of decision-making tools to monitor those SDG indicators related to the environment from an inter-sectoral perspective, aligning with the EU Green Deal priorities and challenges.
SDGs-EYES exploits and combines data from Copernicus’s six core services to develop more accurate SDG indicators.
Through a Pilot-driven approach, the project demonstrates Copernicus-enhanced measurement for six indicators, in addition to the formulation of a cross-goals indicator to explore the exposure of vulnerable communities under cumulative climate extreme hazards.
SDGs-EYES considers the following SDGs
The overarching objective of SDGs-EYES is to demonstrate the feasibility of tailored services, making them available to and exploitable by users to quantify selected indicators from three interconnected UN SDGs.
Number of deaths, missing persons and directly affected persons attributed to disasters per 100,000 population
Net Green-house Gas emissions from the LULUFC sector
Mean near surface temperature deviation
Global mean seawater
Marine waters affected by eutrophication
Share of forest area
Estimated soil erosion by water
On 11-15 of December 2023, SDGs-EYES will be presented at the AGU Annual Meeting 2023 in San Francisco, to share knowledge and research with scientists, educators, policymakers, journalists and communicators.
Unlocking the Potential of Earth Observations: A Recap of SDGsEYES Participation at the GEO Ministerial
The recent GEO Week 2023 side workshop, titled “Earth Observations in Support of the Sustainable Development Goals: Opportunities and Challenges” brought together experts to explore the role of Earth observations and geospatial data in advancing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
From 22 to 23 November 2023, CMCC hosted the second General Assembly of the SDGs-EYES project in Rome. This meeting served as a moment for partners to come together, share updates, delve into the project’s progress and explore the various pilot activities.
SatCen will presents the climate security scenario developed within European Commission projects as The Global Earth Monitor Project (GEM) and SDGs-EYES.
SDGs-EYES at the EC-ESA Joint Earth System Science Initiative Science for a Green and Sustainable Society
On 22-24 of November 2023, SDGs-EYES will present a poster in the session “Climate adaptation – Extremes, multi-hazards, and compound events”.
On 7th of November 2023, SDGs-EYES will be presented during the session “Earth Observations in Support of the Sustainable Development Goals: Opportunities and Challenges” under the GEOweek 2023.
On January 9th and 10th 2023, we organised a kick-off meeting to launch our project. These two days provided a comprehensive view of objectives, deliverables, and milestones, ensuring a strong foundation for the project’s future. Moreover, this meeting was an opportunity to meet all the partners and get to know each other.
