 UNISPACE+50 will take place next year
UNISPACE+50 in 2018 will mark the 50th anniversary of the first United Nations Conference on the Exploration and Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (UNISPACE I), which was held in Vienna in 1968.
UNISPACE+50 represents a milestone opportunity to chart the future role of the Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space, its subsidiary bodies and the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs as unique platforms for international space cooperation and for strengthening unified efforts at all levels and among all relevant stakeholders to address the overarching long-term development concerns of humankind with concrete deliverables pertaining to space for development. This booklet contains seven UNISPACE+50 thematic priorities, endorsed by the Committee in 2016 (A/71/20, para.296), as well as their objectives and mechanisms.
