The Space Climate Observatory is a global initiative that aims to study, monitor and adapt to the impacts of climate change at the local scale, using Earth observation tools combined with field data and models. The SCO offers an international cooperation framework for the realization of projects in different themes related to climate change, involving territorial actors, scientists, companies and space experts.

  2. To present the national and international dimension of its organization,
  3. Explain the process of setting up and carrying out projects;
