The Group on Earth Observations (GEO) is a unique global network connecting government institutions, academic and research institutions, data providers, businesses, engineers, scientists and experts to create innovative solutions to global challenges.

This group of international experts helps identify gaps, share best practices and reduce duplication of effort in sustainable development and sound environmental management on a global scale.

Within GEO is a global network of governments, organizations, and observers that make up the GEO Health Community of Practice. They seek to use environmental observations to improve health decision-making at the international, regional, country and district levels. The Community of Practice uses the One Health approach to analyze geospatial data and enhance understanding of the dynamic ecosystem processes that influence human and animal health.
