The GEO-XIII Plenary meeting in St Petersburg, Russia, today, has adopted a new work programme incorporating GEONETCast as one of its foundational tasks, with the aim of bringing Earth observation data to more users around the world

This follows the declaration made at the Group on Earth Observations' (GEO's) Mexico Ministerial Summit in November last year, in which the GEONETCast partners – EUMETSAT, the US's National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the China Meteorological Administration (CMA) - committed to continue for the next 10 years.
