From 11 – 12 May 2023, the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) is collaborating with Prince Sultan Bin Abdulaziz International Prize for Water (PSIPW) to hold a stakeholder meeting through a virtual platform. UNOOSA invites Space4Water stakeholders and featured professionals, young professionals and indigenous people to apply. Accepted participants will receive a link beginning of May to connect to the meeting.
If your organisation is not yet a Space4Water stakeholder but actively uses space-based technology or data for water (resource) management, hydrology or ecosystem preservation, you can apply to become a stakeholder.
Objectives of the meeting
- Technical presentations by stakeholders, professionals and young professionals to demonstrate their activities and thematic areas of their work;
- Fostering knowledge exchange between the Space4Water stakeholders, professionals, young professionals, and Indigenous voices;
- Matching water-related challenges and space-based solutions;
- Identifying topics, structure and publication modalities for good practices to be developed by the community;
- Identifying ways to assess user needs in the water-related sectors; and
- Discussing and identifying requirements of in-situ data collection, capacity building and coordination mechanisms to this end.

- If you are a young professional using space-based technology or data for water-related issues and are not yet part of our young professionals, fill in this form.
- Applying as a stakeholder or young professional does not mean you applied to attend the meeting. You need to do both to be considered for participation.
- Registration for speakers submitting technical presentations closes on 15 April 2023.
- Registration for all other participants closes on 30 April 2023.
