Continuing its efforts to promote EO services supporting Environment Monitoring for the Banking sector, LuxSpace supports ESA in the implementation of EO-based services for the World Bank.
After analysis of information requirements expressed by the World Bank's sectoral experts, LuxSpace specifies the services in close collaboration with ESA and organizes their service procurement. LuxSpace will closely follow up the project implementation to ensure quality of the products and services delivered. The results of the services, their cost and benefits will be discussed with the users to assess the utility of the products and services.
