The GEO Programme Board, of which GODAN is a participating organisation, was established as part of the development of the GEO Group on Earth Observations' Strategic Plan for the period 2016-2025, having been approved at the Mexico City Ministerial Summit in November, 2015. The Board oversees the establishment of the multi-year GEO Work Programmes and works to align proposed activities with GEO priorities and committed resources.

It is also an opportunity for members of the wider GEO community and external stakeholders to get involved in the GEO Work Programme.
