Symposium on Space Applications

UN/Austria/ESA jointly organise a symposium on Space Applications to support the plan of implementation of the world summit on sustainable development. (11-14 Sep)
The United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs, the Government
of Austria and the European Space Agency (ESA) in 2006-2008 are jointly
organizing the second series of three consecutive symposia to promote
activities to carry out the Plan of Implementation of the World Summit
on Sustainable Development (WSSD), held in Johannesburg, South Africa,
in 2002.
The first symposium in the current series of symposia, held in
September 2006, addressed the benefits provided by space technologies
for monitoring air pollution and energy production and use for
sustainable development.
Building on this event, the Symposium in 2007 will focus on space
tools and solutions for monitoring the atmosphere in support of
sustainable development, with the aim to support or enable participants
to develop and implement projects in this area, and to provide reliable
data and information for policy- and decision-making related to such
issues as air quality, climate change, ozone and ultra-violet
