Activities  Capacity Building Black Sea

The Black Sea Basin is internationally recognized for its ecologically unsustainable development and inadequate resource management leading to severe environmental, social and economical problems.

In 2008, GRID-Europe launched with its partners of the University of Geneva, the EnviroGRIDS @ Black Sea Basin project, addressing these issues by bringing several new emerging information technologies that are totally revolutionizing the way we will be looking at our planet in the future. The Group on Earth Observation Systems of Systems (GEOSS) is indeed building a data-driven vision of our planet that is feeding into models and scenarios to explore our past, our present and our future.

Funded by the European Commission (FP7), EnviroGRIDS is aiming at building the capacity of scientist to assemble such a system in the Black Sea Basin, the capacity of decision makers to use it, and the capacity of the general public to understand the important environmental, social and economical issues at stake.
