David E. Borges, physical scientist at NASA's Langley Research Center for NASA's Earth Applied Sciences Disasters Program, recently joined hosts Alastair Graham and Andrew Cutts for "The Scene From Above Podcast."

In the Season 8, Episode 4, recorded on Oct. 14, 2020, Borges underscores the critical role that Earth observations play in supporting disaster response, recovery and risk reduction worldwide. He outlines the vital role of organizations such as the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) Working Group and the Committee on Earth Observation Satellites (CEOS) Working Group on Disasters (WGDisasters). Borges notes how such groups share common goals to expand the societal benefits of Earth observations by making data more accessible and information easier to integrate into decision-making processes.
