This Inventory on space technology capabilities, facilities and activities in Asia and the Pacific is part of the information dissemination and exchange efforts of RESAP. It provides comprehensive information on a wide range of aspects concerning space technology applications in the context of sustainable development in the region. It is intended for use not only by the space and relevant ICT communities but also by policymakers and end users in various development and application fields as well as general readers, and intended to foster closer regional cooperation and collaboration in the region. As space technology applications become integrated with sustainable development planning in the coming years, they are expected to assume a greatly expanded role in disaster management, environment and natural resources management, and education and health development.
