Space Technologies in the UN

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

As it is especially challenging for developing countries to access and use space-based information, the United Nations support 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 is being carried out throughout the entire UN system to leverage satellite technologies for disaster risk reduction, emergency response, environmental monitoring and sustainable development.
