Space and Development…Increasing Access to Space in Africa

I believe

Posted by Simon Adebola on December 7, 2007

The ‘i’ in ‘i initiative’ stands for three principles
1) Information- that sine qua non of sustainable development, of which space technology is the most effective and powerful means of dissemination, and which Africans are yet to imbibe a culture of.
2) Innovation- Information, creative reasoning, high-tech, these are some of the drivers of the space industry and elements of innovation that are crucial needs in re-engineering African society.
3) Integration- Outer space is the common heritage of all mankind. It is a major area of international cooperation and serves as a binding force for all nations.
