Towards a Common European Green Deal data space for environment and sustainability
The political roadmap - Green data for all
Green open data is an essential resource to meet the objectives of the Green Deal, including those related to climate change, the circular economy, pollution, biodiversity and deforestation. Data can enable the development of environmentally friendly transport and energy systems, as well as greener and more sustainable cities.
Data driven innovation is a key building block to enable the European Green Deal. Paired with digital technologies, it lies the foundation for the intended sustainability transformations. The EU has adopted two related policy frameworks, the European Green Deal in 2019 and the European strategy for data in 2020. Data spaces are under development in strategic sectors and domains of public interest.
The architectural roadmap
The emergence of new technologies, standards, alternative data sources and increased user demand has led to the establishment of completely new architectures that provide flexible and scalable solutions for accessing and consuming data. The service interfaces in traditional SDIs (e.g., WMS, WFS, WCS and SOS) are well known and supported by client applications.
