SESSION 1: BENEFITS OF SPACE TECHNOLOGY AND APPLICATIONS TO SOCIO-ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT PART 2 – INDUSTRY PERSPECTIVE

Wednesday 24 April

The primary focus of emerging countries in developing national space programs is to leverage the benefits of space technologies and applications products and services. Whereas some countries may have a fair appreciation of what this entails, there are a significant number of emerging countries that have not grasped this important benefit and how this can assist in the socio-economic development of the country. The Session focus will be on:

  1. Recognising the relevance of space technologies and applications to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs),
  2. Valuing how space technologies and applications can assist in the socio-economic development of a country.
