Peaceful uses of outer space

During 1993, the Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (Committee on outer space) and its Scientific and Technical and Legal Subcommittees again considered matters relating to international cooperation in the peaceful uses of outer space. The Committee, at its thirty-sixth session (New York, 7-18 June), agreed, as a follow-up to the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development, to promote international cooperation in the application of space technologies for environmental monitoring and sustainable development. It recommended the convening of a third United Nations Conference on the Exploration and Peaceful Uses of Outer Space, possibly in 1995.
