The UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is not only a plan for action, but also a a data driven agenda, setting up 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 targets, supported by 231 indicators. The Agenda‘s success and the measurement of the success depends on quality, accessible, timely and reliable disaggregated data. The monitoring of SDG indicators is orientated to traditional reporting systems. Earth Observation becomes increasingly more importance as an expanding number of satellite missions and observation programmes generate globally available, reliable, systematic and affordable measurements of environmental conditions and changes.
