Regional Support Offices
A Regional Support Office (RSO) is a regional or national centre of expertise that is set up within an existing entity by a Member State or group of Member States that has put forward an offer to set up and fund the proposed RSO. An RSO can be hosted by a space agency, a reserach center, a university, or a disaster management institution, to name some examples. These offices communicate and coordinate with UN-SPIDER on a regular basis, covering the realms of Outreach and Capacity building, as well as Horizontal Cooperation and Technical Advisory Support.
The RSO section comprises a list with the UN-SPIDER RSOs as well as a brief description of each Office, and an overview of its facilities, expertise, and infrastructure.
