UNOSAT and the Office of the Geographer and Global Issues of the United States Department of State strengthen their collaboration

The collaboration between UNITAR ‘operational satellite applications programme "UNOSAT" and the Office of the Geographer and Global Issues of the United States Department of State was recently confirmed in an exchange of letters. This collaboration has been launched some time ago in the framework of a set of common interests pertaining to emergency response and support to humanitarian response worldwide. UNOSAT and the Humanitarian Information Unit at the Office of the Geographer and Global Issues, for example, share technical views and analysis of satellite imagery to improve the quality of existing remote sensing practices in support of rapid assessment and response coordination.
