International Development Banks
Mainstreaming EO services in development banks daily practices has been a priority for VAE since its beginning.
The approach taken goes from consolidating requirements for geo-information services to small-scale service trials to more extensive demonstrations towards sustainable use of EO information within the bank activities and eventually formalization of a partnership agreement.
Similar approaches have involved to date World Bank, European Investment Bank (EIB), UN-International Fund for Agricultural Development (UN-IFAD) and are starting to involve European Bank for Development and Reconstruction (EBRD) and Asian Development Bank (ADB).
More details about the ongoing or completed demonstration projects can be found in the dedicated brochures (see right bar) and in the project specific pages accessible from the map below.
