Session 4 - National And Global Preparedness For Space Weather Events: Research, Forecasting, And Mitigation

Thomas Colvin (Science & Technology Policy Institute), Christopher Cannizzaro (U.S. Department of State), Lucie Green (UCL)

National and global preparedness for space weather events is critical to protecting our security, enhancing our economic well-being, and achieving our aspirational goals beyond the Earth’s orbit. Different countries may take different approaches to increasing preparedness due to their unique geographic, economic, and infrastructure characteristics, yet these differences also present an opportunity to advance global preparedness through identification of best practices and shared goals. Concurrent international actions also present the opportunity to develop collaborations that enhance preparedness through joint or complementary endeavors (e.g., programs, platforms, missions).

This session will bring together government representatives and the research community to discuss potential best practices and avenues for collaboration. Representatives from various countries will have the opportunity to share their efforts at the national and/or global level, as well as their perspective on gaps that could be filled through international collaboration. Researchers can showcase advances in research, observations, or analyses that inform or enhance preparedness for the effects of space weather events. All presenters are invited to identify opportunities for additional research and collaboration to enhance preparedness and resilience to the effects of space weather events.
