The EU Global Action on Space organised a webinar on June 7 to examine the potential of the EU Space Programme for climate change in ASEAN countries. Experts from the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF), the European Space Agency for the Space Programme (EUSPA), and the ASEAN Research and Training Center for Space Technology and Applications (ARTSA) participated in the webinar. Through their presentations, experts addressed the added value that flagship components of the EU space programme can bring to users seeking to mitigate the effects of climate change in ASEAN countries and showcased the support that the European Union can provide through its space programme.
This webinar provided both private and public sector participants from ASEAN countries an opportunity to increase their awareness of the use of EU space-based data to monitor and mitigate climate change and will lay the groundwork for future cooperation between the EU and ASEAN. Experts also explored the topic of climate change and introduced the services and applications offered by both Copernicus and E-GNSS. Participants will have the opportunity to hear from multiple local stakeholders highlighting their ongoing initiatives to fight climate change using EO data and their specific needs.
Through concrete examples, the webinar addressed the possible applications of Galileo, the EGNOS Open Service (OS) and Safety of Life (SoL), as well as Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S). Speakers also discussed possible synergies between navigation and Earth observation capabilities and presented other concrete benefits that EU space capabilities can bring to local stakeholders in ASEAN countries according to their specific needs.
