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 have put forward an offer to set up and fund the proposed RSO. An RSO can be hosted by a space agency, a research 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.

Any organization that wants to make a difference on a global level needs a global network to support it, because no single actor possesses the whole set of required skills. Since its establishment, UN-SPIDER has therefore devoted considerable efforts to building its network of Regional Support Offices (RSOs).
