Informed Decision-Making for Sustainable Development

The Eye on Earth Summit was held on 6-8 October, 2015 in Abu Dhabi, UAE

The Eye on Earth initiative is a collaborative effort between the Environment Agency – Abu Dhabi through the Abu Dhabi Global Environmental Data Initiative (AGEDI) and the Eye on Earth Alliance. As the world gears towards the adoption of the post-2015 development agenda and a global agreement on climate change, the Eye on Earth Alliance aims to improve the availability of information to policy makers and influencers, to drive informed decision-making for sustainable development.

Eye on Water Security proposes to demonstrate practical solutions for addressing these and other challenges. Eye on Water Security SI stakeholders strive to meet the challenges by strengthening technical, educational and organizational foundations through inter-linkages with the other Eye on Earth SIs, particularly Eye on Environmental Education, Eye on Disaster Management, Eye on Global Network of Networks (GNON), and Eye on Access for All. - See more at:
