Welsh Government Launches National Space Strategy

Welsh Government has today launched its National Space Strategy for Wales.

The strategy outlined in a report – Wales: A Sustainable Space Nation, highlights the unique physical and business environment that Wales offers companies that are revolutionising capabilities in the space sector, and sets out how Wales could become the world’s first sustainable space nation by 2040, leading the way to a greener space.

“Environment Systems is delighted to have been involved in developing the strategy,” said Steve Keyworth, Commercial Director, who is a member of the Space Wales Leadership Group and a contributing author to the report.

Environment Systems has a 17 year track record in using Earth Observation for addressing environmental and agricultural challenges. This includes everything from natural capital risk assessments in the Caribbean, banana monitoring in Colombia, the development of an agricultural data infrastructure in Turkey to assessing farmer subsidy eligibility in Wales. Most recently Environment Systems has been using EO analytics as part of the evidence for the Welsh Government national development framework Future Wales: the national plan 2040.
