GRID-Geneva aims at reinforcing its position as an internationally- recognized center for applied research and development, to transform spatially-explicit data into scientifically validated information to support environmental early warning/assessments needed for more sustainable development, from local to global scales. 

Our “core areas” / key activity domains are as follows:

  • early warning and related “emerging issues”;
  • environmental assessment and reporting;
  • data and indicators underpinning the above;
  • capacity building supporting all of the same activities;
  • delivery of a unique set of services in these realms to partners and clients;
  • carrying out of case studies using GIS and remote sensing for the mapping, monitoring and sustainable use of natural resources; and
  • provision of technical expertise for meta database and website design and creation.
