Enabling the peaceful and sustainable use of outer space.
Life on earth as we know it increasingly depends on space technology. Conflict in space could deny humanity the use of it for ever.
UNIDIR’s Space Security Programme builds knowledge and awareness of the risks and global security implications relating to the space domain. Our research builds capacity and trust in the international sphere and informs multilateral processes as they grapple with the complex technologies and issues at play in this important arena.
Developing digital tools to help secure our future in space
UNIDIR’s Space Security Portal and Lexicon for Outer Space Security underpin trust in the space domain by facilitating common understandings around risks, policies and practices.
