What can satellites and observations teach us about co₂ emissions?

Are we on track with reducing emissions to reach our climate goals? Can satellites help countries estimate their emissions and better understand progress towards their climate targets? 

The EU has already decided to launch satellites to support the measurement of co₂ emissions from space. In a few years the Copernicus Carbon Dioxide Monitoring mission (co₂M) will continuously measure co₂ in the atmosphere which can be used to independently estimate co₂ emissions. At this event we share knowledge from research and practice on verification of emissions and look at how this will be increasingly relevant in the years ahead.
