dc.description.abstractThis paper sets out to show how space technology and geospatial data, combined with non-space derived data such as socio-economic data, can enhance the understanding and observation of global, and how it can play an important role in providing valuable information such as trends and patterns in climate change, patterns of urbanization, mapping of water resources and GPS in trans-boundary regional transportation. This paper will also show that despite the wide range of benefits associated with the use of space applications, many developing countries in the Asia Pacific region do not have sufficient access to this important technology, thus depriving them of innovative space-based solutions to the current and future issues faced. It is here where regional cooperation can play a vital role in facilitating greater accessibility to space technologies and the applications of GIS. <p></p> The paper is prepared with the two objectives in mind: (1) to compile and analyze good practices and lessons learnt in space technology and GIS applications in the areas of sustainable urban development, water resource management, transportation management, as well as regional cooperation on space technology applications; and (2) based on the analysis and findings, to provide policy and technical recommendations on how to optimally use space technology and GIS applications for sustainable development.
