The United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs implements the decisions of the General Assembly and the Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space. The office has the dual objective: supporting the intergovernmental discussions in the Committee and its Scientific and Technical Subcommittee (S&T) and Legal Subcommittee, and assisting developing countries in using space technology for development. In addition, the Office follows legal, scientific and technical developments relating to space activities, technology and applications in order to provide technical information and advice to the Member States, international organizations and other United Nations offices.
The Office has two sections: the Space Applications Section which organizes and carries out the United Nations Programme on Space Applications, and the Services and Research Section, which provides substantive secretariat services to the Committee, its two subcommittees and its working groups. The Committee Services and Research Section also prepares and distributes reports and publications on international space activities and international space law.
