Venezuela Joins International Charter on Space, Major Disasters

The Bolivarian Agency for Space Activities has become a member of the International Charter on Space and Major Disasters.

The Bolivarian Agency for Space Activities, which is Venezuela’s space agency, has become a member of the International Charter on Space and Major Disasters, a non-binding agreement aiming to provide a unified system of space data acquisition and delivery to those affected by natural or man-made disasters, Russian state space corporation Roscosmos said on Thursday.

Earlier in the day, Rosatom, which chairs the Charter, held a meeting of its managing board and executive secretariat.

“Today’s meeting and joining the Charter of colleagues from Venezuela are important events for international cooperation of space agencies and space system operators, interested in the free use of satellite resources to deal with emergency situations,” Roscosmos deputy head Sergey Saveliev said as quoted in the statement.

Venezuela has become the 16th member of the Charter. It also includes Roscosmos, space agencies of France, Germany, Brazil, Britain, Canada, India, China, Korea, Japan and Venezuela, as well as other organizations from around the world.
