Last year, APRSAF celebrated its 20th anniversary, and the participants of APRSAF- 20 endorsed further discussion by the APRSAF Executive Committee (ExCom) to renovate the framework of working groups toward socio-economic outcome oriented structure (Recommendations #41).
Responding to this Recommendation, we are pleased to inaugurate the new framework of working groups to contribute to solving common issues in the Asia-Pacific region through APRSAF, i.e. Space Application WG, Space Technology WG, Space Environment Utilization WG and Space Education WG.
APRSAF-21 will consist of plenary and working group sessions. During APRSAF-21, we will also have progress reports on the APRSAF initiatives, i.e. Sentinel Asia (disaster management support system in the Asia-Pacific region), SAFE (Space Applications For Environment), Climate R3 (Regional Readiness Review For Key Climate Missions) and Kibo-ABC (Asian Beneficial Collaboration Through “Kibo” Utilization). In conjunction with APRSAF-21, there will also be SAFE workshop and Kibo-ABC workshop on 1 December.
