Environmental information is of crucial importance. It helps to understand how our planet and its climate are changing, the role played by human activities in these changes and how these will influence our daily lives.
The well-being and security of future generations are more than ever dependent on everyone's actions and on the decisions being made today on environmental policies. To take the right actions, decision makers, businesses and citizens must be provided with reliable and up-to-date information on how our planet and its climate are changing. The European Earth monitoring programme GMES (Global Monitoring for Environment and Security) provides this information.
Thanks to the EU funded project SWIFT, whose aim is to support information dissemination in the framework of the European Commission GMES initiative, SQUARIS has developed extensive experience in this domain.
