Abstract

In this paper we use a game-theoretical approach to model a global partnership in building global earth observation system. Our analysis of possible equilibrium solutions shows that only in the case of similar economies we will observe cooperation behavior (when all invest into global system) and otherwise we will observe free-riding. However uncertainty in environmental risks valuing can provide a strong incentive for free-riders to cooperate.
