This closed - invitation only - webinar provided an introduction to the EU Space programme and showcased the various uses of EU Space data that could benefit the Gulf region, such as: land use and land-use conversion (e.g., agriculture and urbanisation), resource management, emergency response, transport, and security. It also further explored the economic benefits and market potential of those data.
