Abstract

One of the main goals of the State is to guarantee the security and welfare of the citizens. States have agreed in making “a better world” for citizens under the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) targets and actions. States have acquired the obligation to address this mandate and seek all possible solutions to address it. International cooperation and the use of space technology are tools to achieve this endeavor. This paper discusses the innovations of international cooperation introduced by States and its impact in law-making agreements focusing on Climate Change effects and the protection of the environment under the SDG 13. It explains the innovation in cooperation and law-making procedures by taking as an example the UK-Mexico cooperation for the protection of the Bacalar region and its ecosystem within the International Partnership Space Programme (IPSP). Within this scenario, an Earth observation (EO) product for the flood detection using Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) images is presented and efficiently tested over two images acquired during the Hurricane Dean in 2007.
