This one-day symposium, hosted by the CSIS Aerospace Security Project, will explore how the military space enterprise should be organized given the increasing importance of space as a warfighting domain. Speakers will examine previous efforts to reorganize military space forces, problems that need to be addressed, and the pros and cons of different organizational models that have been tried in other parts of the military.
Valuing the Application of Earth Observations to Development: Lessons From the USAID and NASA SERVIR program
The SERVIR program (servirglobal.net) is a joint development initiative of USAID and NASA that builds developing countries’ capacity to apply satellite data to decision-making for food security, water resources management, disaster management, land use, ecosystem management, and weather and climate. USAID recently completed an in-depth performance evaluation that explored the use, impact and value of SERVIR’s tools, data and capacity-building efforts for its beneficiary communities.
At this event, Isaac Morrison of Management Systems International will present the results of the new evaluation. USAID experts will discuss how SERVIR is incorporating lessons from the evaluation to improve development impacts. Finally, an expert panel will provide reactions to the findings for the broader community.
Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) Steven M.

It will bring together academic and practical perspectives of the development of space law, and allow academics and practitioner in the front of the field to exchange their views.
