European Earth observation programme

The Council adopted a regulation on the European Earth observation programme (GMES) and its initial operations (2011-2013), following an agreement reached with the European Parliament in first reading.
The regulation will contribute to the establishment of GMES as an operational programme, and will provide additional funds for its initial operations enabling a gradual build-up of capabilities until 2013, as well as putting into place the necessary structures for the governance of the programme. It includes an additional EUR 107 million in the initial operational phase of GMES, as proposed by the Commission in May 2009 GMES is an EU-led initiative to develop Europe's own operational Earth observation capacity in order to collect information about the planet’s physical, chemical and biological systems and, more generally, to monitor the natural environment. It draws on both space-based (i.e. satellite) and nonspace- based facilities, including airborne, seaborne and ground-based ("in situ") installations. Data collected via satellites and in situ infrastructure are processed to provide information services
allowing better management of the environment and enhancing security for citizens.
