CEOS/CGMS Statement to SBSTA-47

STATEMENT TO THE UNITED NATIONS FRAMEWORK CONVENTION ON CLIMATE CHANGE SBSTA 47/COP 23 06-17/11/2017 “The consolidation of space agency efforts through the establishment of the joint CEOS/CGMS Working Group on Climate has resulted in a significant increase in efficiency in responding to the needs of Systematic Observations as required by the Convention. This is manifested in part by considerable increase in the quantity of climate data records (factor 3) submitted by agencies to the Essential Climate Variable (ECV) Inventory with respect to the first exercise implemented in 2015.”

“The synergistic relationship with the UN’s GCOS Programme continues to strengthen. Here, CEOS and CGMS present a response to the 2016 GCOS Implementation Plan reiterating their commitment to address the Actions required for the implementation of the global observation system for climate.


GCOS Side Event

GEO Side Event proposed (see GEO presentation)Two side events have been proposed by GCOS and WMO (will probably be merged into one event)Still waiting for confirmation and logistics information from the UNFCCC secretariatWGClimate intend to present the Space Agency Response to the GCOS IP in the context of one of these side events in coordination with GCOS.

we are in contact

with GCOS and

still trying to find the best way for

WGClimate to report on the Space Agency Response to the GCOS IP. There is a high likelihood that a stage can be arranged. GCOS also proposed a UN system wide side event (approved)It will be WMO, IPCC, GCOS and the World Food Program talking about their role as practitioner in applying science information.

The GCOS IP is featured there including talking about climate indicators.No CEOS representative as originally planned.


Other Identified actions(not necessarily exhaustive list)

ESA exhibit “Space for Climate Action” during two weeks;UNFCCC side event related to land use monitoring in Pacific Islands together with Australia (lead applicant);EU Pavilion side event on GHG providing a platform for Climate Change Initiative and Sentinel-5P and promoting Sentinel-7 CO2 mission. ESA lead with support from




Pavilion side event on Sentinels for REDD+ under ESA lead with support from DG GROW;Decoration for the EU Pavilion based on satellite images of small island statesTwo high level interviews with RTCCParticipation at SBSTA related to GCOS implementation plan and systematic observations;Participation at climate change side events related to science, mitigation (REDD+) and adaptation.Copernicus Climate Change Service Side Event by ECMWF
