MEO Climate, official launch in the Gers region
Backed by the Toulouse-based start-up MEOSS, MEO Climate was one of the first projects to be awarded the Space Climate Observatory (SCO) label in March 2020. The objective is to implement a mapping platform that will provide local and regional authorities with local spatial and temporal indicators that are up-to-date and validated. The tool, which is being tested in the Gers region of south-west France, will enable close monitoring of the initiatives undertaken in the areas of renewable energies, management of water reserves and farming practices. We talked to Thomas Ferrero, founder of MEOSS, and Hervé Lefebvre, Chair of the collective association of municipalities managing the plan for coherent territorial development (SCoT) in Gascony, south-west France).
