The United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) requested the activation of the International Charter "Space and Major Disasters" on behalf of the National Disaster Management Centre of South Africa for floods and mudslides in Durban and the surrounding KwaZulu-Natal province of South Africa, which killed over 60 people and displaced more than 1,000. The German Aerospace Center (DLR) served as the project manager for this call.
