Event Name:  The Role of Space Technologies and Agencies in the Fight Against Climate Change
Event Description:  CIGI’s International Law Research Program (ILRP) is delighted to host a lunch and learn session on “The Role of Space Technologies and Agencies in the Fight Against Climate Change” In 1999, the United Nations declared that during the period October 4-10 annually, the world should come together to celebrate the benefits of space science and technology. 17 years later, the World Space Week remains an important week of celebration and reflection for space enthusiasts around the world. In fact, in 2015, with close to 1900 events in 73 nations, World Space Week was the largest space event on earth. This year’s World Space Week provides opportunities to reflect on the importance of space-based geoengineering in addressing the problem of climate change. CIGI Post-Doctoral Fellow ILRP and Executive Director of the World Space Week Association, Timiebi Aganaba-Jeanty will present an overview of the concrete roles of space technologies and agencies in combating climate change. This talk will highlight some of the law and governance challenges of collaborative space activities, and will provide recommendations on the development a potential global climate change satellite system.
