Space and Climate: How Space Agencies Will Contribute to the Implementation and Follow-up of the Paris Agreement during COP 21

Tuesday 27 September 2016, 08:30 – 09:30
Location: Guadalajara Hall 4,5,6,9&10

Climate change is one of the most important challenge humankind is facing. Due to their global coverage at different scales (spatial and temporal), space missions have an important role to play in the fight against climate change since the phenomenon is global with local impacts. This has been highlighted in particular through the Mexico Summit Declaration made under the umbrella of International Academy of Astronautics in September 2015. About one year after the great success of the United Nation Framework Convention on Climate Change Conference of the Parties number 21, the so called COP 21, held in France, Space Agencies will present concrete actions in support to the agreement of Paris concerning observation, mitigation and adaptation strategies.
