Earth observation is entering a new era
A trend that will continue in 2018 and beyond
December 29, 2017
s 2018 makes its big entrance we are also delighted to share more about our mission and why 2018 will see a continued growth of the new generation of earth observation companies.
First and foremost 2017 has made it more clear than ever that climate change is real. The earth’s water cycle is at the center of this change, and heavily impacts economic and social development: it is vital to maintain health, grow food, generate energy, manage the environment, and create jobs. Water-related hazards, including floods, storms, and droughts, are responsible for 9 out of 10 natural disasters. Climate change is expected to increase this risk, in addition to placing greater stress on water supplies.
