This activity report provides an overview of the World Bank – European Space Agency (ESA) collaboration until November 2011, and an insight into the services contents. The collaboration began in 2008 with initial, small-scale Earth observations demonstrations for three World Bank projects. Twelve Bank projects are currently benefiting from the initiative in the following domains: climate change adaptation, disaster risk management, urban development, agriculture and forest management, water resources management, coastal zones management, and marine environment management. Initial results from these projects are presented in this report.
