Space Technologies in the UN

Space technologies play an important role in many areas of activity within the United Nations, both in relation to disaster risk management and emergency response. Various agencies are involved in UN disaster risk reduction and UN emergency response efforts, and can therefore greatly benefit from space-based information. 

As it is especially challenging for developing countries to access and use space-based information, the United Nations supports these Member States through satellite-derived information products, such as maps, and through capacity building and institutional strengthening.

This section shows examples of the extremely valuable work that the UN is conducting, in order to leverage satellite technologies for disaster risk reduction, emergency response, environmental monitoring and sustainable development.
