United Nations/Indonesia International Conference on Integrated Space Technology Applications to Climate Change

On 4 September 2013, UNOOSA and LAPAN, the Indonesian National Institute of Aeronautics and Space, successfully concluded a three-day conference focusing on integrated Space technology applications to climate change. The Conference brought together around 150 Indonesian and international experts from the space, the environment, academia and the climate change community as well as decision makers from Member States and from national, regional, and international organizations.

The goals of the conference included to discuss ways in which Member States affected by climate change can make better use of space applications to assess the manifestations of and the vulnerability to climate change as well to improve synergies among stakeholders targeting efforts on mitigation and adaptation to climate change. The conference included plenary presentations and discussions as well as nine working groups that focused on the following topics:

 

  • Mitigation/REDD
  • Climate Change and Disasters
  • Adaptation in Coastal Areas
  • Climate Change and the Environment
  • The Role of Research in Climate Change issues
  • Data Policy
  • Mitigation and Adaptation in Mountains
  • Adaptation in Agriculture
  • Weather and Climate
