Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/. The officials of the Ministry of Digital Development and Communications of Mongolia held a virtual meeting with the officials of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).


Due to global warming and climate change, the ecological balance is lost and the frequency of natural disasters is increasing. Therefore, there are needs such as conducting detailed research in this area in combination with space technology, making situation assessments based on many years of quantitative data, and predicting potential risks. Therefore, our country will receive NASA's support for research in this area. Moreover, the sides agreed to implement joint programs to upskill Mongolian specialists in space research.


The Ministry of Digital Development and Communications actively develops cooperation with NASA, the Russian State Space Corporation (Roscosmos), the Asia-Pacific Space Cooperation Organization (APSCO), and the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO).
