The Alliance for Earth Observations is a publicly and privately funded initiative of IGES to promote the understanding and use of land, air and sea observations for societal and economic benefit. Through active stakeholder engagement, the Alliance brings together those that develop the tools to monitor the planet with those that need the information to manage it and serves as a link between the private sector, the government and the general public.
The Alliance’s mission is to ensure the rapid and broad delivery of the most timely, comprehensive and accurate environmental information for improved decision-making. With members from the private sector, academia and non-governmental organizations community, the Alliance advances the sustainability of U.S. Earth observation capabilities to ensure that this vital intelligence continues to protect citizens and property, grow the economy, and ensure national security—now and in the future.
