Preview WEF Book on How Space Based Technologies can Help Address World Challenges

Monday, January 27th 2014
By Adena Schutzberg

The Global Agenda Council on Space Security, part of the World Economic Forum, is putting together a book titled Bringing Space Down to Earth. It

breaks through the technical jargon and clearly explains how space-based technologies and services are crucial to face society’s greatest challenges. In a straight-forward manner, the Global Agenda Council on Space Security aims to inform readers about a wide range of opportunities they may not have known were possible.

There's a pre-launch preview with an overview of the book’s content − 12 chapters spanning topics from food security and education, to disaster management and climate change.

Each chapter acts as a guide, summarizing the challenges humankind faces, the potential tools and solutions provided by space-based technologies and services, and case studies showing how these tools and solutions are already being applied.

This sounds like a valuable volume for professionals and educators.
