Space Supporting the UN Sustainable Development Goals 2030 Agenda

Wednesday 23 October 2019, 15:55 – 16:55
Location: The Walter E. Washington Convention Center – Grand Ballroom C

Since the adoption in September 2015 of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), there has been an increased understanding that space programmes, projects, applications or technologies are and can be great contributors to the measurement and the achievement of the Goals. Initiatives have been developed at local, regional or global level. Yet, much has to be done in order to take full benefit of “space” and make sure those tasked to implement the Goals are aware of what exists, or find the right ways to express the message on what they would need. The Goals have to be reached by 2030, that gives little time to act. The GNF will give the opportunity to some of the actors to exchange on what they propose and what they need.
