NASA Participating In International Earth Observation Summit

On Thursday, July 31, 2003, senior administration officials and
representatives from approximately 25 nations will convene in

The Earth Observation Summit brings together ministerial-level
representatives from the G-8 and other countries with a significant
role in Earth observation, one of the top three G-8 science and
technology priorities. Representatives from the World Bank, World
Meteorological Organization, and other multilateral organizations
will also attend. The Summit aims to raise awareness of the
importance of cooperation and investment in Earth observations
for the benefit of international decision-makers.

Key speakers at the Summit include: NASA Administrator Sean O'Keefe;
Secretary of Energy Spencer Abraham; Secretary of Commerce Don Evans;
Secretary of State Colin Powell; Science Advisor to the President,
John Marburger; and White House Council on Environmental Quality
Chairman James Connaughton.
