Join the RFF-NASA VALUABLES Consortium community on Monday, December 5, for a celebratory capstone event about measuring the societal benefits of using satellite data in decisions. Our in-person program will include networking opportunities at a pre-event lunch and post-event reception.

During this half-day event, we will reflect on more than five years of the VALUABLES Consortium, which has involved socioeconomic research, capacity building, and convening. Gather with us as we celebrate the interdisciplinary consortium community, discuss socioeconomic impact assessment results and resources, reflect on lessons learned, and look ahead at future trends in socioeconomic assessment and impact measurement for Earth observations.

We will highlight research results from the VALUABLES community on health, water quality, ecosystems, and disasters. Researchers will reflect on lessons learned from quantifying the value of using satellite information in decisions that improve socioeconomically meaningful outcomes. We will spotlight impact assessment tools and resources, methods to measure the value of scientific information, and metrics for measuring progress against socioeconomic assessment goals.

The event will culminate in a forward-looking discussion about what qualitative, quantitative, microeconomic, and macroeconomic assessment opportunities members of the community could take up next to the document and measure the societal value of Earth observations.

For in-person attendees, doors will open at 11:45 AM ET. A light lunch will be available. The capstone event will begin at 12:30 PM ET. A reception will follow the event after 4:30 PM ET.
