The SDCG is following a phased approach to:
- allow the establishment of the necessary coordination processes with contributing agencies;
- reflect the schedule of gradually increasing availability of the anticipated core data streams between now and 2016;
- reflect priorities set by the policy context and readiness of individual countries to participate in REDD+ development;
- take into account the need for continuity of coverage of the existing National Demonstrator countries established under the GEO-FCT task as a precursor to GFOI.
The availability of data streams is shown below.
Baseline Space Data Coverage for 2013 – 2016
A baseline space data coverage for 2013 – 2016 has been defined, and is currently in the process of being implemented.

Requirements of individual countries will be explored from 2013 onwards. Countries with queries relating to their space data coverage and data access can contact GFOI via the Space Data Coordination Group.
