Evaluation of Earth Observation for Sustainable Development

ESA EO4SD has an overall objective to start the integration of satellite information products & services, as ‘best- practice’ environmental information, in the planning and implementation of the development projects, programmes and activities of the International Finance Institutes (IFIs), together with their respective Client States (CS).

This Rapid Assessment provides an evaluation of the progress, results and lessons from the current EO4SD programme focused on the Urban Development, Agriculture & Rural Development and Water Resources Management projects. The evaluation is aligned to the OECD DAC Criteria for Evaluating Development Assistance – to assess EO4SD’s Relevance, Effectiveness, Efficiency Impact and Sustainability.
