Space technology against climate change

Andrea Daly Aurenty Journalist

Climate change has become a popular topic due to the list of consequences of not taking action on it. Creating awareness has been the first challenge faced by institutions and experts in the area, which has borne fruit after years of campaigns related to the subject.

Entrepreneurs and investors have been motivated to be part of the movement that seeks to stop the impact generated by current activities and for this, technological advances have been promoted that drive society to achieve the sustainable development objectives of each country.

One of these is space technologies, whose uses vary considerably, from connecting with spaces that are difficult to reach, to providing key information that can avoid conflicts between countries.

Space technology has thus become an invaluable source of information, which opens up possibilities for analysis and improves decision-making by specialists, institutions and governments.

Space technology: an ally against climate change

According to the September 2020 report of the Global Economic Forum, it can be noted that 99% of correct climate predictions come from space. In addition, more than 160 satellites are monitoring and measuring climate indicators that allow authorities and companies to improve decision-making regarding the activities of today’s society.

Extreme conditions and climatic variations are two important elements that are monitored through satellites and space technology. This makes it possible to be aware of natural disasters at the time of the event in order to improve the capacity and response time of the relevant authorities or institutions in the face of disasters that can be catastrophic or generate a high amount of human and material losses.

One of the aspects in which space technology has played a leading role is in the documentation of climate change, sea level measurements, changes in the planet’s temperature, among others. This documentation has allowed a more exhaustive analysis of actions, consequences, impact and predictions.

In addition, this constant monitoring allows us to stop illegal activities that have harmed the planet for years. Among them, illegal deforestation, illegal fishing and trade in wild animals stand out, whose disappearance or decrease within an ecosystem can generate serious consequences.

It is a fact then that satellites are a great ally on the way to achieving Sustainable Development Goals around the world.
