From the earliest days of space exploration, the United Nations recognised the important role that space-related technologies can play in improving the human condition throughout the globe. To this end, the United Nations and its specialised agencies conduct a coordinated programme of activities utilising these technologies. UN-Space, an inter-agency mechanism for such coordination, convenes annual sessions of the Inter-Agency Meeting on Outer Space Activities to discuss current and future activities, emergent technologies of interest and other related matters among UN system entities. For broader stakeholders' consultations, UN-Space organizes informal sessions open to Member States, private sector, non-governmental institutions and academia.
