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

Through a collaborative process, this Inclusive Innovation (ii2030) Challenge looks to find a sustainable model to ensure open access to high-quality earth observation data that can be used, for instance, for machine learning.

With this last co-creation session, we will flesh out a revenue model for data platforms by organisations such as the Radiant Earth Foundation that offer open earth observation data. The aim is to maintain and increase the overall availability of such data in the Global South. Earth observation data can play a significant role in advancing the sustainable development goals, for instance for improving food security and emergency responses on various scales.

In this online session, we will especially focus on how data procurement can be a catalytic lever for generating valuable data for third parties. We understand this as a chance to make more earth observation data widely available beyond a traditional project and donor logic.

Rather than creating another tech solution, the ii2030 process focuses on a strategic collaboration method between stakeholders to co-create effective change together.

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.
