The SDGs EYES project aims at increasing the use of Earth Observation data in the implementation of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) indicators. The project will not only refine existing indicators or develop new ones but will also provide an environment where users can join and develop indicators, refine and publish them to be available to the SDGs’ indicators community.The current document aims at providing a complete description of the environment to be implemented to support indicators development, implementation and publication. It describes the overall architecture, the modules requirements and outlines technical implementation options. The proposed SDGs EYES platform ICT needs are listed and the operational costs estimated. As planned within the project proposal documentation, the deployment plan will follow an Agile methodology to run two implementation sprints before the first pilot demonstration, and two further sprints to evolve and finalize the platform and services by the end of the project. It is decided to
deploy the platform within a single Kubernetes environment to enforce both horizontal and vertical scalability and fill follow a continuous integration and deployment workflow.

Platform and service implementation details will be included in the upcoming version of the document (D4.2) being released at month 18.
