Til denne paneldebat vil du kunne høre om hvordan rumfart og den data som satelitter sender tilbage til Jorden bruges til at indfri FNs verdensmål både når det kommer til klimaovervågning, nødhjælp og storpolitiske uoverensstemmelser. Eventet arrangeres af Dansk Selskab for Rumfartsforskning i samarbejde med COPE (Copenhagen Center for Disaster Research) og foregår på engelsk.

The panel will consist of:
Nathan Clark (Programme Director, Copenhagen Center for Disaster Research).
Space technology and applications play and important role in our efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. However the impact and effectiveness of these technology and applications require inclusive cooperation and building partnerships among governments, private sector, international organizations, NGOs and civil society. Taking departure from Goal 17, this talk will highlight a number of the global initiatives currently working to integrate space technology and applications into the SGDs, and will further open a discussion on the need for better systems integration, data sharing and global partnerships and governance for maintaining sustainable and resilient societies post-2030.
Peter Fisker (Development Economics Research Group, University of Copenhagen)
Peters research is about how to use satellite data to reduce poverty – he will be using the case of urban poverty in Mozambique where he works on using Neural Networks on high-resolution satellite images of cities to generate detailed neighborhood-level poverty maps, providing key operational guidance for implementation of the urban social safety net. Peters research support Sustainable Development Goal 1: End poverty in all its forms everywhere
Louise Sandberg Sørensen (Senior Researcher from DTU Space).
Her research is focussed on investigating how, and how much, the ice-covered areas of the Earth are changing. In her research she uses satellite data to track and analyse how fast the ice is thinning, and how the mass of the ice sheets changes from month to month. Her research helps shows the consequences of climate change and is a vital in order to support Sustainable Development Goal 13: Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts
