Climate Engine helps Google accelerate and scale the implementation of Earth Engine for public sector organizations. We do this to help the public and private sectors deliver on mandates related to sustainability and climate resilience. 

Economic and environmental security depends on understanding and responding to change.

Responding to climate threats and building a sustainable future is dependent on all sectors taking action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, reduce climate related risks, and improve environmental sustainability.

In partnership with Google Cloud, Climate Engine helps organizations accelerate their climate and sustainability missions through the delivery of data driven insights based on the world’s best available science.

Climate Engine works across sectors, including:

Public Sector

Improve delivery on key sustainability, health, and environmental mandates; understand risks to critical infrastructure and assets; plan for a climate resilient future.

Agriculture

Improve yields, more efficiently manage water, and better predict and model agriculture outputs by combining spaceborne data sources and land sensor measurements.

Water

Enable future forecasting for flood, drought and wildfire, better manage water resources, and improve disaster preparedness through EO water data products.

Finance

De-risk portfolios through near-term and long-term forecasts and projections, and monitor economic activities for better indicators.

Climate Change

Adapt to climate change through monitoring and forecasting environmental change. Leverage spaceborne data to better understand risk and manage disasters.

Natural Resources

Better manage resources using remote sensing technologies. Monitor and evaluate sustainable practices across a supply chain.

Public Sector

Improve delivery on key sustainability, health, and environmental mandates; understand risks to critical infrastructure and assets; plan for a climate resilient future.

The public sector is faced with many challenges when it comes to climate change and sustainability. Climate impacts are already being felt around he world are likely to increase in severity. The public sector must lead the charge on reducing greenhouse gas emissions, increasing carbon sequestration, and improving overall sustainability.

At the same time, the public sector must manage the risks associated with climate change. Climate impacts will continue for decades as a result of historical and ongoing greenhouse gas emissions. As such, the public sector must understand, assess and manage climate-related risks while also increasing capacity to increase capacity to prepare for and adapt to a changing climate.

Climate Engine provides data, analytics and monitoring systems to help the public sector deliver on their mandates to reduce climate risks, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and improve environmental sustainability.

Agriculture

Improve yields, more efficiently manage water, and better predict and model agriculture outputs by combining spaceborne data sources and land sensor measurements.

Demands on our agricultural systems are continually increasing to meet the needs of the growing world population. At the same time, agriculture is increasingly at risk to severe drought and changing climatic patterns.

Earth observation can support growers and policy makers by providing data for better water management, tools for predicting crop yields at field, national and global scales, and support new markets for carbon sequestration.

Water

Enable future forecasting for flood, drought and wildfire, better manage water resources, and improve disaster preparedness through EO water data products.

Freshwater access and availability is one of the most important problems of the 21st century. At the same time, most of the world’s most costly and damaging extreme weather events are caused by water, namely drought and flood.

Earth observation allows for a detailed accounting of our available surface water resources as well as their use. This can help with better management and distribution of freshwater resources. Data analysis and insights can also enable planning for floods and future forecasting can help us better predict and prepare for natural disasters.

Finance

De-risk portfolios through near-term and long-term forecasts and projections, and monitor economic activities for better indicators.

Climate change is a major challenge for financial institution, and it is accelerating. It is also becoming a sovereign credit risk as extreme weather threatens core infrastructures and economic outputs.

Earth observation data can provide value to governments in a number of ways. EO data can provide better insights into ESGs through better monitoring and evaluation. It can help financial institutions understand physical risk and opportunities. This data can also help de-risk portfolios threatened by extreme events such as flood, wildfire, and drought.

Climate Change

Adapt to climate change through monitoring and forecasting environmental change. Leverage spaceborne data to better understand risk and manage disasters.

The scope and scale of the climate crisis will largely be determined by how we act today. While we aren’t certain about which climate scenarios we will experience in the future, we do know that climate change is happening now and the future will not look like the past.

Earth observation data can help support climate action. It can assist in climate mitigation by providing data on where best to build renewable energy systems, monitoring and evaluation capacity for carbon sequestration markets, and identify greenhouse gas emissions. It can help support climate adaptation measures such as early warning systems, the identification of critical infrastructure at risk of climate hazards, and planning tools for better allocation of resources during disasters.

 

Natural Resources

Better manage resources using remote sensing technologies. Monitor and evaluate sustainable practices across a supply chain.

Managing natural resources at the scale it requires has always been a challenging proposal. Adding climate risks such as wildfire, drought, and disease only makes it more difficult.

The proper implementation of EO data can help managers in pubic sector organizations better manage land that is in their care. It can be used to detect illegal deforestation, measure, report and verify on REDD commitments, and provide early warning systems for wildfire and drought.
