The SAGA-EO proposition consists in a feasibility study on critical pieces of the puzzle of the Lisbon Declaration Implementation Plan on GMES and Africa and to complement previous experience in that field. The SAGA-EO concept is based on a sound experience of both European and African programmes dealing with environment monitoring based on information derived from Earth Observation data. The main finding driving the concept is that no programme tackles the EO field as a global approach (technological, organisational and institutional). The way to implement this EO capacity building challenge is to set-up dedicated EO networks at African national level and to link them with existing initiatives in Africa and Europe. In SAGA-EO, the EO network approach will constitute the ground where to build the thematic networks. The main purpose and objectives of the SAGA-EO project is to design and implement the network organisation and associated technology and to prove it in five countries trough the following the five main actions : Action 1: To define African Earth Observation network organisational models at national level Action 2: To define generic technological solutions, compatible with existing standards, to receive, archive, share, disseminate, advise on EO data Action 3: To implement a proof of concept of the organisation & technology in few countries Action 4: To write a methodology for the implementation of the future operational networks and system Action 5: To cooperate with the GMES Africa Working Groups in the preparation of the EU-AU Join Strategic Partnership action plan.

E2mC aims at demonstrating the technical and operational feasibility of the integration of social media analysis and crowdsourced information within both the Mapping and Early Warning Components of Copernicus Emergency Management Service (EMS). The Project will develop a prototype of a new EMS Service Component (Copernicus Witness), designed to exploit social media analysis and crowdsourcing capabilities to generate a new Product of the EMS Portfolio. The purpose of the new Copernicus Witness Service Component is to improve the timeliness and accuracy of geo-spatial information provided to Civil Protection authorities, on a 24/7 basis, during the overall crisis management cycle and, particularly, in the first hours immediately after the event. This will result in an early confirmation of alerts from running Early Warning Systems as well as first rapid impact assessment from the field. The technological enabler of the Copernicus Witness is the innovative and scalable Social&Crowd (S&C) Platform, developed by E2mC. Heterogeneous social media data streams (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and different data: text, image, video, ) will be analysed and sparse crowdsourcing communities will be federated (crisis specific as Tomnod, HOT, SBTF and generic as Crowdcrafting, EpiCollect,). Two demonstration loops will validate the usefulness of Copernicus Witness and the S&C Platform suitability to allow EC to evaluate possible Copernicus EMS evolution options. E2mC will perform demonstrations within realistic and operational scenarios designed by the Users involved within the Project (Civil Protection Authorities and Humanitarian Aid operators, including their volunteer teams) and by the current Copernicus EMS Operational Service Providers that are part of the E2mC Consortium. The involvement of social media and crowdsourcing communities will foster the engagement of a large number of people in supporting crisis management; many more citizens will become aware of Copernicus.

geoland2 intends to constitute a major step forward in the implementation of the GMES Land Monitoring Core Service (LMCS). The three components (Local, Continental and Global) of the LMCS are addressed. The goal of geoland2 is (i) to prepare, validate and demonstrate pre-operational service chains and products that will underpin the LMCS, and (ii) to propose and demonstrate a concrete functional organisation of the LMCS. The geoland2 deliverables are : (i) the organisation of a production network, (ii) the building of operational processing lines, (iii), the demonstration of services and products, (iv), the set up of a land user platform. geoland2 efforts will rely on the assets of previous or ongoing projects funded under FP6 (geoland, Boss4GMES), by ESA (GSE projects Land, Forest Monitoring, GMFS, SAGE, Urban Services) and EEAs CLC/FTS 2006 project. The architecture of geoland2 is made of two different layers, the Core Mapping Services (CMS) and the Core Information Services (CIS). The CMS produce basic land cover, land cover change, and land state products which are of broad generic use and can be directly used for deriving more elaborated products. The CMS products cover a wide variety of thematic content, spatial scales from local to global, and update frequency, from 1 day to several years. The CIS are a set of thematic elements that start from CMS products and other data sources to produce elaborated information products addressing specific European policies. They are in direct contact with institutional end-users in charge of European policies and Member State policies which have a generic pan-European character. geoland2 gathers 51 partners from 21 European countries. The requested EC grant is 25 M, which corresponds to a total budget of approximately 37 M. The largest part of the budget allocation goes to the construction of the CMS.

The Copernicus programme, coordinated and managed by the European Commission, delivers environmental information (largely based on Earth Observation satellite data) in the form of Copernicus Services, addressing six thematic areas: Land, Marine, Atmosphere, Climate Change, Emergency Management and Security. The new Sentinel satellites, recently extended through the successful launch of Sentinel-3, will deliver an unprecedented volume of EO data in high spatial, radiometric and temporal resolution, providing a huge potential for monitoring applications within the Land Monitoring Service - at continental and global scale. The synergistic use of Sentinel-1/2/3 opens up the possibility for new applications, such as the use of time series in the area of Land Monitoring. The ECoLaSS project (Evolution of Copernicus Land Services based on Sentinel data) aims to develop methods and algorithms for pre-operational prototypes improving and developing future specific Copernicus Land services. These prototypes, representing new or improved Copernicus Land Cover and Land Use products, will be demonstrated by means of test/demonstrations sites distributed over Europe and Africa, representing multiple bio-geographic regions and biomes. Prototypes will be designed with high spatial and thematic accuracy, in a timely manner for a pan-European operational Roll-out with the potential for global applications. ECoLaSS will promote the innovation potential of new land monitoring services and applications and might thus contribute to a growing Copernicus Economy by boosting (new) Copernicus CORE Land Services and value-added applications (Downstream Services). It is expected, that such new services will bring new opportunities with a wide range of dedicated applications to the market from 2020 onwards and thus significantly contribute to a positive evolution of the Copernicus Land services.

It is the overall aim of EUFODOS to develop specific Forest Downstream Services (FDS) that are urgently required by regional European users in an economically viable manner and utilise the GMES Land Forest Core products as a basis for the development of these services. The specific FDS which will be examined and developed to a pre-operational level are related to assessment of forest damage and mapping forest functional parameters. As the GMES Land Core products are not yet operational the FDS will thus also provide a pre-operational validation of the GMES services and products. The FDS programme is based on 3 foundations: technical/methodological developments which will be based on an approach that combines Earth Observation (EO) and in-situ data as well as the GMES Forest Core products; the formation of a functional Service Network (SN) which includes effective representation/involvement of the user community, the service providers and the research community; and the assessment of the economic feasibility of developing the service cases such that they are sustainable. Thus these foundations form the following programme objectives: 1. Development of a FDS Service Network comprised of service providers, users and the research community for effective involvement of all stakeholders and service delivery. 2. The investigation and implementation of methodologies for forest degradation assessment and forest functions parameter mapping for the provision of pre-operational systems. 3. The users commitments to participate in the validation of the Core products, as well as the utility assessment of the downstream services within their own work practices. 4. The assessment of the economic cases for these different regional downstream services to ensure sustainability. All the objectives will be fulfilled within the lifespan of the EUFODOS programme.

The EOMonDis Project aims to improve the operationality of tropical forest products/services in order to better access the funding for the UNFCCC REDD\ policy which is a large market segment for the EO-industry in Europe. Additionally, national forest policy programmes and Zero Deforestation programmes also require forest monitoring systems with assessment of forest/non-forest information using disturbance indicators for deforestation and degradation as well as changes in above ground woody biomass. In order to provide operational forest monitoring services for the humid and dry forests several technical challenges have to be overcome. For example, the occurrence of persistent cloud conditions in tropical regions impact the effective use of optical EO data. Seasonal effects in dry forest ecosystems (leaf-fall) combined with limited availability of multi-seasonal EO data coverages also influence the quality and cost effectiveness of the monitoring systems. These situations will change drastically with the Sentinel constellations which provide the high frequency, high resolution optical and radar data required. Therefore, the overarching goal of EOMonDis is to develop innovative and cost-effective EO-based methods to address the technical challenges for tropical forest monitoring which will also fully utilize the comprehensive information provided by the dense time series of optical and SAR satellite data of Sentinel-1 and 2. The methods developed will be tested on study sites selected to represent the wide range of variety in the tropical biomes, in Malawi, Cameroon, Gabon and Vietnam. Users from these countries will be consulted for consolidation of the service requirements, validation of the services, the customization and improvement of the services to fit into their workflows. Based on a market analysis and service validation by the User a 3year business concept will be developed to ensure that there is income generation after the project completion.

Deforestation and degradation are estimated to contribute about 20% of global greenhouse gas emissions. A group of developing countries initiated a process at the UNFCCC Conference of Parties (COP-11) in 2005 to address the issue of reducing emissions from deforestation and degradation (REDD), that would be implemented as a post-Kyoto Protocol mechanism. Countries have been encouraged to develop REDD Pilot Projects to assess the feasibility of such a mechanism. Earth Observation in combination with in-situ data are important tools for forest cover and land use monitoring in the REDD process. The current proposal REDDAF aims to develop pre-operational forest monitoring services in two Congo Basin countries that are actively involved in the REDD process. The users in both Cameroon and Central African Republic require such services and will actively participate in project implementation. The main activities proposed are: Stakeholder Analysis: country specific user requirements to identify the needs of stakeholders in terms of instituting REDD projects. Carbon stock accounting: research and development of methods for improved EO/ in-situ data applications to estimate areal extent of deforestation and forest degradation as well as biomass per unit area. The historical changes in forest cover will be used to establish a reference baseline. Based on these research efforts pre-operational processing chains will be developed. Technology Transfer/Capacity Building to the country: activities to ensure that project results, methodologies and lessons learned are provided in a manner to best support the work of national and regional counterparts. The services and products that will be delivered to the user community include forest cover maps and forest cover change maps for 1990-2000 and 20002009/10 (land use changes based on six IPCC compliant land use classes); degradation maps, biomass maps and the relevant digital datasets.
