Over three-quarters of Europeans (77%) think a space monitoring system to manage disasters and crisis as well as mitigate the effects of climate change should be developed by the EU. 14% say by the EU alone for all Member States, but a majority of 63% think it should be by the EU together with the Member States. Almost one in eight Europeans (12%) thinks it should be developed by each EU country who wishes so.
