Abstract

GMES is a system to provide a long-term global monitoring and information service related to Environment and Security. The system will be used at local and regional levels within Europe and will also provide information necessary for Europe's global interests. A central purpose of the system is to assist the execution of European Union Policies and international agreements where Europe is a signatory. In particular, it will provide the relevant implementing agencies or organisations with information that is needed for compliance with the directives and regulations that are associated with policies, and for compliance with the conventions that are associated with international agreements.
