United Nations/Pakistan International Workshop on Integrated Use of Space Technologies for Food and Water Security
The United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (OOSA) and the Government of Pakistan are jointly organizing the Workshop to promote the use of space technologies for the benefits of developing countries.
The Workshop will be held in Islamabad, Pakistan, from 11 to 15 March 2013, hosted by the Pakistan Space and Upper Atmosphere Research Commission (SUPARCO) on behalf of the Government of Pakistan and cosponsored by the Inter-Islamic Network on Space Science and Technology (ISNET).
The Workshop will explore how present-day space technologies help to identify and monitor the relationships between mountain environment (as a source of water), sustainable water resources and how these affect food security on an international and regional scale. It will therefore also link to the context of the Rio+20 Summit Declaration and to the evolving United Nations Post-2015 Development Agenda.
