Security and Stability of Space: What You Need to Know

When: Tuesday, March 16, 2021

Where: 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM ET

On Dec. 7, 2020, the UNGA adopted a resolution first proposed by the United Kingdom on “Reducing space threats through norms, rules and principles of responsible behaviours” (A/RES/75/36). This is an important opportunity to hold multilateral discussions on how to address the threats facing the long-term sustainability, security, and stability of outer space as well as the benefits all countries derive from use of outer space. This resolution asks members of the UN to report to the Secretary-General what they deem to be threats to space security and how they view responsible behavior in space. 

SWF supports this resolution and wanted to reach out to countries and provide information to support national inputs on A/RES/75/36. As part of our support,SWF hosted a public virtual event on March 16, 2021, from 10am-11:30am ET that will share information about the current state of space security and stability and discuss potential disruptions to space capabilities that could negatively impact life on Earth. See below for video of the event. A transcript will be available shortly.
