UNOOSA: Space Programs in Developing Countries
With many advancements in humanity’s ability to travel in space, it seems like space is truly the next frontier for the advancement of humanity. This vast expanse is a realm of infinite opportunities and possibilities for mankind. However, these opportunities are only accessible to a small fraction of nations, and concentrated in developed countries, which would only increase the gap in wealth once space industries become established. Delegates in this committee will work to assist in and encourage the long-term development and expansion of space programs, including manufacturing, research, and personnel training, in developing nations through UNOOSA in pursuit of a more equitable realization of space’s opportunities.
