Space to Promote Peace (with focus on reconstruction of Afghanistan), September 2004, Paris, France, 119 pages, Can Space technology promote peace and development in the world? Can Space technology contribute to meet efficiently such a challenge and aid the Afghan and the international efforts of reconstruction in Afghanistan? Can Space- based tools make a difference? These are questions that nations having space-capabilities have to answer and make a combined effort to pitch in support of promoting peace and bring in an improvement in the quality of life of these people. Intuitively, countries with access to space assets know that space-based applications can have the potential to enhance life on Earth, including contributions to environmental monitoring, natural resource management, health, and therefore to contribute to the improvement of the quality of life in these countries. However, they know that the capabilities of space technology are still not used in a huge part of the world where they could be extremely useful, particularly in Afghanistan: The challenge is implementation.
