2016: United Nations/United Arab Emirates High Level Forum: Space as a Driver for Socio-Economic Sustainable Development

20 - 24 November 2016, Dubai, United Arab Emirates

The   First High Level Forum aims to drive debate on the role of space science and technology in fostering global development. The Forum therefore represents a unique opportunity for the collective space community to address the future global space governance leading up to the fiftieth anniversary of the First United Nations Conference on the Exploration and Peaceful Uses of Outer Space "UNISPACE+50" in 2018. This also could be a fitting time to take stock of the contributions of the three UNISPACE conferences, held in 1968, 1982 and 1999 respectively, to global space governance.
