Amendment 56: A.8 Supporting UN Sustainable Development Goals moved to 2018

Amendment 56 moves program element A.8 Supporting UN Sustainable Development Goals 14 And 15 in the Context of Climate Variability and Change to ROSES-2018.

This program element seeks proposals supporting the implementation of selected targets under United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals 14 "Life Below Water" and 15 "Life on Land", which lend themselves to satellite remote sensing. Moreover, it calls for proposals to do so within the context of climate variability and change. Thus, proposals must use satellite remote sensing and other tools to address specific Sustainable Development Goals 14 or 15 target or targets in a manner that explores the implications of climate variability and change for addressing that target(s).

The Earth Science Division had planned to offer Supporting UN Sustainable Development Goals 14 And 15 in the Context of Climate Variability and Change as program element A.8 of ROSES-2017, but scheduling issues prevented it from being released in 2017 so it will be solicited in ROSES-2018.
