Climate Resilience kick-off meeting

The kick off meeting for Climate Resilience will take place on the 3rd of December 2021. It is the second activity launch under the GDA AID (Agile Earth Observation Information Development), after the Disaster Resilience activity line kicked-off earlier this year.
