The goal of the Digital Earth Partnership shall be to accelerate the world’s adoption of new digital geospatial services for sustainable development.

The envisaged development objective of the program is to enhance the outcomes of service delivery across sustainable development sectors through improved data services for spatial monitoring, decision support and risk management activities, that are locally appropriate, affordable, scalable and sustainable.

The Digital Earth Partnership will develop close working collaboration with both traditional development partners and national space agencies and institutions working to advance the effective use of new earth observing services.

While a detailed program has yet to be defined, certain characteristics and guiding principles may be considered to incorporate the lessons learned of past efforts, build on the World Bank Group’s comparative advantages, and work in alignment with the Bank’s strategy and its new Green, Inclusive, Resilient Development (GRID) framework for sustainable development.
