The Seventh International Workshop for Disaster Risk Reduction Knowledge Service
Beijing . China
The 2023 Belt and Road Forum on Digital Earth
Digital Earth technological developments, in particular the rapid digital
transformation, hold tremendous potential in enabling innovative solutions to
address the developmental challenges we are facing today. As emerging economies
of the world, BRI host countries have unique opportunities to cooperate in science
and technology to develop, adopt and demonstrate innovative solutions and lead
the development of digital technology. The response to climate change, the effort
towards green development, the sustainable development practices in agriculture,
forest and water resources monitoring, land management, disaster prevention and
reduction, and heritage protection are high-potential areas of cooperation towards
sustainable development among BRI host countries.
With these motivations, ISDE proposed to organize the 2023 Belt and Road Forum on
Digital Earth. This forum will provide a good opportunity for leading scientists,
engineers, policymakers, educationists, entrepreneurs, and other stakeholders in BRIhost countries as well as representatives of relevant international organizations to
discuss and communicate on Digital Earth science and technology innovation and
technology application practices to address common challenges for sustainable
development in BRI host countries.
