Hi I'm David Hayes the Deputy Secretary of the Interior.

I'm here in Bejing at the Global Earth Observation Summit.

This is a group of countries that have come together to share information about what's happening to the globe.

Satellite information, land-based information,

these countries have agreed to share this information

so that folks on the ground from Nigeria to North Dakota

can figure out what the climate is doing to their lands

how much water supplies are being hit by climate change

Health impacts

It's a very exciting opportunity

It's the best of international cooperation

And it provides a basis for discussions across our nations

On some of our most important global issues.
