Exploring space technologies for sustainable development
This report highlights the potential opportunities of space-enabled technologies for delivering on the Sustainable Development Goals and proposes science, technology and innovation policy options for harnessing space technology for sustainable development. The report also discusses the role of regional and international research collaboration to support such efforts. The achievement of ambitious global goals in widely differing local contexts requires the combination of space capabilities with detailed local knowledge. Global research collaboration offers great potential to contribute to this process, providing opportunities to both create new knowledge and increase the impact of research by diffusing existing knowledge.
