Paralell thematic panel: The contribution of aerospace and satellite technologies to sustainable development: spaces for further regional and international collaboration

The applications of space and satellite science and technology can contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. The use of these technologies can help ensure food security, reduce the risk level of natural disasters, prevent humanitarian crises, monitor natural resources and reduce poverty, as well as making important contributions to telecommunications and health. The panel will address several of these issues, which reflect the importance of space technologies for development. The panellists will also discuss the main bottlenecks encountered by countries in the region in developing these technologies, including limited financial resources, the lack of technologies and knowledge, and the lack of specialized institutions. In addition, they will analyse some national, regional and international initiatives, policies and strategies that can foster use of space and satellite technologies for regional development.
