Earth Observation (EO), and particularly Copernicus infrastructure, data, and services play a critical role in supporting the EU forest strategy's policies and regulations. The EU Copernicus Programme, previously known as GMES (Global Monitoring for Environment and Security), is the Earth Observation component of the European Union Space Programme, looking at our planet and its environment for the benefit of Europe’s citizens. It offers information services that draw from satellite Earth Observation and in-situ (non-space) data.

The EU Copernicus Programme is implemented by the European Commission in partnership with the Member States, the European Space Agency (ESA), the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT), the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF), EU Agencies and Mercator Océan, the European Environment Agency (EEA), the Joint Research Center (JRC).
