Special Events for Emerging Countries at IAC 2016    


Making Space Accessible and Affordable to All Countries


 
The Special Global Network Forum (GNF) & Satellite Application Workshop will be held during the IAC 2016 in Guadalajara. Both events will be held on Thursday 29 September 2016 respectively from 9:30-10:30 and from 13:30-17:30.

As emphasized in the UN Agreement on the Sustainable Development Growth (SDG) adopted in 2015, international collaboration is becoming more and more important as it is one of critical factors to improve the welfare of people, especially for developing countries and to protect our planet. It is also analyzed that utilizing space technology effectively for emerging space nations could lead to enhancing their capabilities in improving agriculture, health, education, resource management, disaster management, etc.
 
In this regard, the Special GNF and Workshop Sessions are prepared to promote the initiative of IAF members’ collaboration and to enhance the utilization of space technology for emerging space nations.
 
In the Special GNF session, UNOOSA Director, Simonetta Di Pippo will deliver a speech about the provision of technical and policy guidance to emerging countries to reduce geographical gaps in the area of application, through capacity building and strengthening institutional relations.
 
In the Round table discussion, NASA Deputy Administrator, Dava Newman, ESA Director of Earth Observation, Josef Aschbacher, UN Secretary-General’s Special Adviser on the SDGs, David Nabarro, SPIDER Coordinator, Luc St Pierre, Director General, Mexican Space Agency, Francisco Javier Mendieta Jiménez and Adviser to Bavarian Ministry of Economy and DLR, Joerg Feustel-Buechl, will discuss the importance of international cooperation and support of space technology for emerging countries.

The discussion will be moderated by Joo-Jin Lee, VP of IAF, Korea Aerospace Research Institute and Christina Giannopapa, Chair CLIODN, European Space Agency.
 
The Satellite Application Workshop is prepared to promote the utilization of space technology for the management of natural resources and natural hazards. The Workshop will provide the detailed application of satellite data for the Latin and South American region. The lectures will be given by highly experienced experts from NASA, ESA, ISRO and KARI as Josef Aschbacher, Director of Earth Observation, ESA, Frank Webb, Deputy Manager for the Earth Science Research and Mission Formulation Office, JPL NASA, MVR Sesha Sai, Group Director, Agricultural Sciences & Applications Group, National Remote Sensing Centre (NRSC), ISRO, and Eunsup Sim, Research Fellow (former VP), KARI.

Each lecture will be 50 minutes long and practical demonstration of s/w will be presented during the lecture.
