ENVIRONMENT / RISK MANAGEMENT
In view of the obligations States are faced with concerning the fight to preserve the environment, as well as prevent and manage risks, environmental information can be considered an essential and undeniable element. On a European level, the CORINE programme (coordination of information on the environment) was launched in 1985, with data being now updated every 6 years. IGN FI has held a major role since the beginning, creating and validating the geographic databases for land use such as CORINE Land Cover. Outside of Europe, IGN FI has promoted the CORINE concept using adapted versions which take into account the specific aspects of regions and also participates in a project on ecosystem accounting of Africa’s natural capital.
IGN FI can assist any type of entity wishing to obtain coherent and integrated environmental data and the tools enabling them to use the data as well as to improve its skills via specific, tailored training.
