| 19-20 November 2008, Bucharest, Romania - Group on Earth Observations Plenary V

The fifth plenary session of the representatives of the countries and organisations which have joined the international initiative on Earth Observations will be held from 19-20 November 2008 in Bucharest, Romania.

Following the adoption of the Cape Town declaration, endorsed at the last Ministerial Summit, the Ministers expressed their commitment to provide further formal guidance towards the successful implementation of GEOSS.

The highlights of the plenary will encompass the last achievements of the Common Infrastructure which allows the user of Earth observations to access, search and use the data, information, tools and services available through the Global Earth Observation System of Systems. A continued emphasis will be granted on capacity development as a key issue in the implementation of all aspects of GEOSS.
