The objective of the current report is to look in a broad fashion at how space has contributed to sustainable development in the past, at the untapped potential in this respect, and at how this untapped potential can be unlocked. A special focus of the report is thus going to be an endeavour to define how dialogue and cooperation mechanisms can be set up between the various space and sustainable development actors. How such mechanisms can be set up in such a fashion that space will become an optimum enabler of sustainable development efforts driven by the demand side - represented by those who are implementing the SDGs and those who
are facing all the practical challenges of activities on the ground.
