Title: SPACE: Using Outer Space for Sustainable Development
Space research and technology can be applied to alleviate poverty and address all aspects of development. Peaceful uses of outer space include environmental mapping and management, disaster monitoring and mitigation, water management, and communication systems for health and educational purposes. Space-faring and developing countries can cooperate on how to develop and implement these applications. There is an urgent need to shift focus and resources away from the military uses of outer space to its peaceful uses for global development.
