UNIDIR Soft Launch of The Space Security Portal

Room XXI, Palais des Nations
UNIDIR Soft Launch of The Space Security Portal

Building on the success of the UNIDIR Cyber Policy Portal, UNIDIR is developing a Space Security Portal to support transparency, information sharing, confidence, and capacity-building in the field of space security. The Portal will gather available information at the national, regional, and international levels on policies, processes, and structures that are relevant to the development and activity surrounding outer space security.

As part of the development of the Space Security Portal, UNIDIR’s Space Security Programme is organizing an event to introduce the tool and showcase its structure and functions. At the event, we would also like to invite states to submit information on the activities they have undertaken in relation to space security through the circulation of a survey that will allow them to contribute to the completion of their national profiles.
