Our Common Agenda Policy Brief 7 : For All Humanity – the Future of Outer Space Governance
01 May 2023
International cooperation is needed more than ever, yet our collective problem-solving mechanisms do not match the pace or scale of the challenges we face. Today’s complex, interconnected, and rapidly changing world requires a more effective multilateral system – with the United Nations at its core.
At the invitation of Member States with the adoption of the UN75 Declaration, the Secretary-General issued Our Common Agenda in 2021, his vision for the future of international cooperation. One of the key objectives of this report is to tackle the obstacles and impediments to the 2030 Agenda, turbocharging action on the Sustainable Development Goals. It provides practical recommendations to fill gaps in global governance in order to take on emerging challenges.
Member States have rallied to take action across a number of areas. The Summit of the Future in 2024 is a critical opportunity to reaffirm and bolster shared principles, taking forward solutions to more effectively deliver for the people and planet. At the Summit, Member States have committed to adopting a Pact for the Future to cement collective agreements and to showcase global solidarity for current and future generations.
