Two satellite-based ESA initiatives to address COVID-19

The coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic has virtually paralysed daily life as we know it. Even when the spread of this highly infectious disease has been stemmed, the world will face huge challenges getting back to normal. To help support experts working in Europe’s research centres and technical organisations during these unprecedented times, ESA has issued two new initiatives related to understanding the effects that COVID-19 is imposing on society, the economy and the environment.

PSCE publishes position on Climate Action

PSCE has been providing critical insight into Public Safety and Disaster Response (PPDR) since 2009. Today, we commit to take action in response to the climate crisis. The PPDR sector is aware of the challenges due to climate change and PSCE supports the transformation lead by the European Commission and its “Green Deal” as well as the latest "Industry Strategy".

PSCE is eager to bring some proposals to the table in view of mobilising our industry for a clean and circular economy. Last November, the European Parliament has declared climate emergency and according to EU survey findings, 93% of EU citizens see climate change as a serious problem and 79% see it as a very serious problem.
