background
Background
  • UN activities on Space Technology Applications are dealt with UN – Office on Outer Space Affairs (UN-OOSA)
  • Member Countries (68) have joined to form UN Committee on Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (UN-COPUOS)
  • Many resolutions from UNISPACE III, UN-General Assembly and UN-COPUOS have stressed international cooperation in capacity building though regional centres.
  • Regional Centres are
    • CSSTEAP :Centre for Space Science & Technology Education in Asia Pacific(Estd 1995)
    • CRECTEALC :Regional Centre for Space Science and Technology Education for Latin America and the Caribbean(Brazil and Mexico, Estd 1997)
    • CRASTE-LF :African Centre for Space Science and Technology(Africa – French Language, Morocco, Estd 1998)
    • ARCSSTE-E :African Regional Centre for Space Science and Technology Education(Africa – English Language, Nigeria, Estd 1998)
