This Compendium features examples of space applications in the public sector, which are spearheaded by space agencies, national sectoral agencies, development agencies, academic, and public organizations. Altogether, the examples show that despite capacity gaps and other constraints, countries have been actively developing and deploying integrated geospatial information in a wide range of socioeconomic sectoral applications. There has been a marked increase in the number and diversity of these applications since ESCAP began tracking them in 2019, a year after member States adopted the Plan of Action on Space Applications for Sustainable Development in Asia and the Pacific (2018–2030) (Plan of Action). The applications span a wide range of areas, such as disaster risk reduction, management, and response, crop monitoring, poverty mapping, land accounting, and ocean and air pollution monitoring.
