Activity description: A broad range of activities in space technology applications. Two current major areas of focus are: (1) Satellite Communications for Connectivity: promoting public-private partnerships (and other enablement) toward improved benefits from satellite communications for improved connectivity (including affordable, accessible and usable products and services), benefiting underserved communities in Asia and the Pacific. (2) Operational space-derived information products and services for sustainable capacity-building in Asia and the Pacific. This focuses on encouraging space agencies and others to move forward from prototyping and pilot projects to delivering operationally useful products and services that are affordable, accessible, and usable.
