Satellite telecommunications have potential as a source of information for rural and remote areas, and may help countries to "leapfrog" stages in development. They can contribute to sustainable development by giving people access to information and helping members of the public to participate in decision-making, or more generally by improving education and health services and promoting
favourable conditions for environmental protection.
