Adoption and Impact of Earth Observation for the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

This report is the result of a close and productive collaboration between ESA and some of the key International Financial Institutions (IFIs) over the
last decade. Together with the World Bank (WB), the Asian Development Bank (ADB), and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), ESA have been evaluating the benefits (quantitative and qualitative) that satellite Earth Observation (EO) can deliver to development assistance in the framework of operations carried out in the developing countries.

The report highlights both the use cases and development outcomes and impacts of satellite Earth Observation (EO) – from both ESA and additional organisations and initiatives.
