development of the Belt and Road Region (B&R) using Big Earth
Data. DBAR pursue outstanding research and development questions
relevant to attaining SDGs in B&R countries through a system
of Foci that are categorized into two parts, one centralized
on Big Earth Data, while other eight Foci encompass the social,
environmental and technological aspects of different SDGs and
are relevant to and addresses the sustainable development in
B&R region. DBAR calls for international Science Technology
and Innovation (STI) cooperation in support of SDGs at local,
