ARSET Trainings for Monitoring & Meeting the UN Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, global leaders adopted the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. These goals aim to end all forms of poverty, and recognize that ending poverty goes hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth and address a range of social needs, including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and environmental protection. (UN Sustainable Development Agenda)

Earth observations can support the implementation and monitoring of SDG targets and indicators. ARSET training helps people understand how to access and apply those observations. If a goal below is grayed out, it does not mean that remote sensing can't be applied - just that ARSET has yet to offer a training related to that goal.
