  4. International Charter on Space and Major Disasters 600th activation

    Publishing date:

    March 21, 2019

    Created in 1999 by CNES, ESA and CSA (Canadian Space Agency) and declared operational in 2000, the International Charter on Space and Major Disasters makes space assets available to emergency response teams in the event of a natural or man-made disaster. A unique example of successful international cooperation, it today combines and coordinates the Earth-observation expertise and resources of its 17 member space agencies. The charter aims to respond to requests from emergency management agencies in affected nations, local authorities, civil security agencies and the United Nations, for which it provides satellite imagery of disaster zones free of charge through priority tasking of more than 35 satellites to get information as quickly as possible to relief teams on the ground.
