Space for Development
Avenues for specific collaborations were developed in 2022, inspired by the shared desire to highlight concrete synergies at the intersection of the respective objectives of the Luxembourg Space Agency (LSA) and the Luxembourg Development Cooperation.
Thus, certain specific opportunities are emerging: space-based technologies that can directly support the implementation of development cooperation projects, as well as access to Space for developing countries and the capacity building (including through university training and technical assistance facilities) that is required in order to do this, and the provision of (secure communication) space technologies. These will be pursued in accordance with any needs expressed by the countries with which the Directorate for Development Cooperation and Humanitarian Affairs cooperates.
For example, Luxembourg provided expertise through the Space Law for New Space Actors project implemented through the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA).
