GEO INDIGENOUS ALLIANCE
Sustaining Indigenous Lands, Empowering Peoples: GEO IA - Where Geospatial Innovation Embraces Indigenous Guardianship"
A Bit of Background
The Group on Earth Observations (GEO) Indigenous Alliance was founded by Indigenous representatives at the GEO Canberra Ministerial Summit 2019 in Canberra, Australia. The vision of the GEO Indigenous Alliance is to protect and conserve Indigenous Cultural Heritage by using Earth Observation science, data and technology to create a knowledge base that sustains the Earth we live on.
“We must protect the forests for our children, grandchildren and children yet to be born. We must protect the forests for those who can’t speak for themselves such as the birds, animals, fish and trees.”
