The Space for Water Project
In 2016, the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) and the Prince Sultan Bin Abdulaziz International Prize for Water (PSIPW) signed an agreement to collaborate on their common goal of promoting the use of space-based technology for increased access to water.
The Space for Water Project consists of activities in the following areas, on which you can read more information below:
Through its collaboration with PSIPW, the Office for Outer Space Affairs has developed and launched the Space4Water Portal, a platform for interdisciplinary knowledge exchange on space technologies and water-related topics. The portal brings together organisations active in the field to share information on projects, initiatives, satellite missions, software, community portals, capacity building and training material, conferences, workshops, as well as news and publications. The information is categorised and shared publicly in a user-friendly format.
The Office for Outer Space Affairs also supports initiatives that bring together experts to discuss cooperation, capacity-building and future approaches to water resource management. For more information, see:
