  • The United Nations General Assembly agreed to establish the “United Nations Platform for Space-based Information for Disaster Management and Emergency Response (UN-SPIDER)” as a programme within the United Nations to provide universal access to all types of space-based information and services relevant to disaster management by:

    • being a gateway to space information for disaster management support;

    • serving as a bridge to connect the disaster management and space communities; and

    • being a facilitator of capacity-building and institutional strengthening.
