294880 - Leveraging Earth Observations and Cloud Technology for Global Sustainable Development

Global sustainable development seeks to promote prosperity while protecting the planet. Earth observations play an important role in monitoring targets, tracking progress, and helping nations and stakeholders make informed decisions. However, this data is not always easily accessible and users may not have the compute power necessary to take advantage of these resources through their own on-premises data centers. The recently launched Amazon Sustainability Data Initiative significantly reduces the cost, time, and technical barriers associated with analyzing large datasets to generate sustainability insights. In this session, we will hear from the Radiant.Earth Foundation, the Group on Earth Observation and Digital Earth Africa on ways Earth observations and AWS cloud technology are supporting governments, NGOs, businesses, and individuals to make more informed decisions and manage challenges such as climate change, soil and coastal erosion, deforestation, desertification, and water scarcity.
