BMZ digilab’s Inclusive Innovation 2030: Co-creating sustainable open access to earth observation data

In a collaborative process, this Inclusive Innovation (ii2030) Challenge worked on a sustainable model to ensure open access to high-quality Earth observation data that can be used for machine learning, for example.

In this last co-creation seminar, we elaborated a revenue model for data platforms of organizations such as Radiant Earth Foundation that offer open Earth observation data. The goal was to increase the general availability of such data in the Global South. Earth observation data can play an important role in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, such as improving food security or disaster relief.

In this online seminar, we focused on how data sourcing can be used as a lever to generate valuable data for third parties. We see this as an opportunity to make more Earth observation data available beyond traditional project and donor logics.

Rather than creating more technical solutions, the ii2030 process focuses on strategic collaboration among stakeholders to work together to create effective change.

This ii2030 challenge was initiated by BMZ digilab, an initiative of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), together with FAIR Forward and the Radiant Earth Foundation and is implemented by endeva, a systems innovation agency.
