There is strong scientific consensus that the global climate is changing and that human activity is contributing significantly to this trend. Space-based technologies and space-derived information play a key role in climate knowledge, science, monitoring and early warning. Space-based information can contribute to assessments of the vulnerability of communities to climate change and can help monitor the effectiveness of adaptation strategies.
In recent years the Office of Outer Space Affairs has conducted a variety of outreach, awareness raising and capacity building activities which have included climate change as a topic. The Office helps to link space and climate experts with decisions makers through workshops and symposium organized directly by the Office or co-organized with partners.
