Space4SDG17: Partnerships for the Goals
Now we have come to the very final article in this series on Space technology for Sustainable Development Goals. This goal is not related to Sustainable Development per se but a tool to help collaboration for the pervious 16 SDGs. This SDG promotes international collaboration and cooperation to achieve the goals. Space technology has little to no contribution in this SDG except for helping establish the connectivity between countries and organisations. There is one thing in particular I would discuss and that is how space industry read carefully, space industry not technology which can help foster cooperation and collaboration thus improving relations between countries and thus establishing trust and improving relations to allow smoother implementation of SDGs. Sharing and collaboration in terms of data accessed by space technology allows the countries to see the relations from a perspective that the collaborated teams working so smoothly and together they are achieving heights and this promotes the collaboration for SDG. International Space Station is a shield that has helped prevent conflicts between various countries because of the kind of collaboration that is going on there in space.
