Africa Space Week 2021

September 6 September 10 SAST

The inaugural Africa Space Week is a hybrid event, held in collaboration with the Kenya Space Agency. African Space Week aims to strengthen all African space efforts, including the African Space Policy, African Space Strategy, and the African Space Agency. It features Agora Talks, keynote speeches, interactive sessions, plenaries, panel discussions, parallel working groups, side events, and exhibitions. During the main event, each of the four segments of space (namely Earth observation, navigation and positioning, satellite communication, and astronomy and space science) will be discussed in one of five streams:

  • Policy, strategy, law and regulation
  • Governance, partnerships, funding and all resources mobilisation mechanisms
  • Synergy for efficient programmes development and implementation on services
  • Capacity building and utilisation (infrastructure and human capital development) with a focus on academia
  • Private sector: challenges and opportunities

The Virtual Introductory Technical Advisory Mission and Training for policymakers in Africa, co-organised with the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA), precedes it on 4 September 2021. Held online, it will focus on the regulation of small satellites.
