The year 2018 was exciting for the international community, with the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) hosting UNISPACE+50, which celebrated the 50 th anniversary of the United Nations Conference on Exploration and Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (UNISPACE). The event brought over 800 participants from all over the world together in Vienna, including representatives from over 30 space agencies. A key policy outcome of UNISPACE+50 was the international community’s agreement, endorsed by the United Nations General Assembly (A/RES/73/91), to establish a Space2030 agenda. The Space2030 agenda is envisioned as a comprehensive strategy for reaffirming and strengthening the contribution of space activities and technologies to the achievement of global agendas such as the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Paris Agreement and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction.
