Report on 8th UN-SPIDER RSO meeting published

The 8th annual meeting of UN-SPIDER Regional Support Offices took place from 6 to 8 June 2017, in parallel to the 60th session of the Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (COPUOS). Focal points from ten RSOs attended the meeting, as well as representatives from other partner institutions.

The meeting aimed to compile additional contributions from the RSOs to the draft 2030 Roadmap for UN-SPIDER and to formulate inputs to the UNISPACE+50 process, specifically related to its thematic priority 6, “International Cooperation Towards Low-emission and Resilient Societies”. Participants also formulated concrete proposals for joint activities between the RSOs and UN-SPIDER taking into consideration the projects that were discussed during the UN-SPIDER+10 conference in 2016. A further focus was placed on fostering inter-RSO cooperation through specific collaborations and programmes.
