THE ONGOING CHALLENGE
  • SUCCESS IS VITAL TO QUALITY OF LIFE AND HEALTH
    FOR 7 BILLION PEOPLE

2012 WAS THE BEST EARTH DAY EVER
  • ONE BILLION PEOPLE IN 192 COUNTRIES PARTICIPATED
    IN OVER 1 BILLION ACTS OF GREEN

GLOBAL EARTH OBSERVING SYSTEM (GEOS)
  • SUPPORTED BY 50 COUNTRIES
  • A NETWORK THAT WILL CONTINUOUSLY MONITOR THE
    LAND, SEA, AND AIR
  • A STEP FORWARD IN UNDERSTANDING THE EARTH AND
    MONITORING FACTORS RELATED TO GLOBAL CLIMATE
    CHANGE AND DISASTER RISK REDUCTION

25
GLOBAL EARTH OBSERVING SYSTEM (GEOS)
  • 50 SATELITES COLLECT ENVIRONMENTAL DATA
  • 68 MOORED BUOYS OPERATED BY USA AND JAPAN MONITOR
    THE EQUATORIAL PACIFIC
  • 1,288 BUOYS OPERATED BY 14 NATIONS MONITOR
    TEMPERATURE AND SALINITY
  • SYNTHETIC APERATURE RADAR WILL HELP FORECAST
    VOLCANIC ERUPTIONS

26
FACTORS THAT FACILITATE A PARADIGM SHIFT
  • POSITIVE MEDIA ACTIONSPOSITIVE ACTIONS WILL
    INCREASE PUBLIC AWARENESS.
  • SALIENCEWILL ATTRACT A LARGE PERCENTAGE OF THE
    COMMUNITYS/REGIONS LEADERS AND PROVIDE A BASIS
    FOR PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS.
  • AVAILABILITY OF POLITICAL LEADERS AND SCIENTIFIC
    EXPERTSTO FORM THE CRITICAL MASS.
  • PRE-EXISTENCE OF SCIENTIFIC KNOWLEDGE AND PUBLIC
    POLICYA BASIS FOR LEGAL MANDATES FOR MONITORING,
    MITIGATION, AND ADAPTATION.

27
EMPHASES BASED ON A LARGER SOCIAL CONSTRUCT OF
THE ISSUES
  • POLICY EMPHASIS 1 FOCUS ON THE NATURE AND
    APPROPRIATENESS OF MOVING FROM THINKING TO
    ACTION BY PARTNERSHIPS AND THE WAYS TO ENLIST
    SUPPORT FOR EACH PROPOSED ACTION

EMPHASES BASED ON A LARGER SOCIAL CONSTRUCT OF
THE ISSUES
  • POLICY EMPHASIS 2 FOSTER REALISTIC CHANGE BY
    INTEGRATING THE BEST PRACTICES FOR MONITORING,
    PREVENTION-MITIGATION, AND ADAPTATION BASED ON

31
EMPHASES BASED ON A LARGER SOCIAL CONSTRUCT OF
THE ISSUES
  • POLICY EMPHASIS 3 CREATE, ADJUST, AND
    REALIGN POLICIES AND PARTNERS UNTIL YOU CAN

MAKING MONITORING, PREVENTION-MITIGATION, AND
ADAPTATION WORK
EXPERIENCE WITH PREPAREDNESS
EXPERIENCE WITH MONITORING AND WARNING
PARTNERSHIPS DESIGNED TO MEET THE NEEDS OF 2010
AND BEYOND
