Short details

 GEO CB-06-01/03 actions
  Initial survey (03/2006) to CB Committee
   members (only)
  Extended survey (11/2006) to +- 500
   organizations (> 60 countries)
  Aim:
    extend Cap building information gathering from
     broader audience
    Supply GEO with more data on CB in EO
Survey questions

 Questions (similar to Survey I) on:
   Executing institution, agency, organization
   Activity type: Education &Training, Institutional,
    Infrastructural
   Geographic target: global, regional, country..
   Target theme (Societal Benefit Area)
   Time frame: continuous, fixed term,..
   Size incl. budget: budget, funding source,..
   Reported gaps, requirements
   Future & intended developments
 Additional small questionnaire on SBA Health

Reported CB gaps and constraints


 Under further analysis:
  Training materials, manpower,
   infrastructure, data access, etc.
  Merging with reported capacity building
   initiatives of GEO CB Survey #1.
Initial survey on EO for Health SBA

 Low response (15%), but some
interesting answers and signals:

   Weather/climate data – health relationships
     An example: Vector-borne disease monitoring using EO
     Link Regional climate outlooks to health
   Air & water quality monitoring (using EO) and health effects /
    interaction
     E.g. harmful algae, waterborne diseases, airborne migration..
   Linking Environment & health databases using ICT and GEO
    data infrastructures
   Water, air and soil pollution – epidemiology
   More “in situ” health data needed on for ‘calibration –
    validation’ cycle of EO monitoring schemes
Follow-up actions

 To be discussed (Tenerife CBC meeting)
 Establish links to CB-07-01(a,b,c,d,e)
