Cross-Cutting Issues & Challenges
Delivering on the Targets
Answering the Question(s) raised by the Plenary (our sponsors and funders)
What is the value-added by GEO/GEOSS?
What is the complementarity of GEOSS?
1000 flowers – absolutely essential, but not sufficient
Linkages with policy-makers, GEO Prinicipals
European Commission FP7, GEO linkages
Data Sharing/Data Availability
Mechanics versus policies
Challenges for developing countries
Timliness, consistency, plethora of portals
Cross-Cutting Issues, cont.
Coordination of Data Collection Efforts
Assessing Progress against Targets
Start with the end in mind – Strategic Targets
Bullet Points “Demonstrated by….” section (Outputs)
Outputs should map to one or more Components
Need concrete, measureable activities and schedules to deliver each Component
Ideally one per year, but one MAJOR one that shows forward progress
Point person (per component) for monitoring
Follow the Plan -- [temptation for scope creep is immense]
