The agriculture community represents one of the early adopters of space. The use of GNSS-powered machinery and the usage of satellite imagery have indeed clearly affirmed its role in making farming more efficient and sustainable for several years. However, climate changes, regulatory impacts and technological innovation are key factors making users’ needs and requirements more and more demanding.
Forestry plays a critical role for our health and wellbeing, in sustaining our planet, addressing climate change, and ensuring environmental sustainability. The integration of space technologies has revolutionized our understanding and management of forests. This session will emphasize the invaluable contributions of EU space technologies in effectively managing forests, mitigating climate change, and promoting sustainable practices.
This session will deep dive into how the EU Space Programme can contribute to fulfilling the increasing needs of agriculture users, as well as those directly involved in forest ownership and management.
