NASA and USAID have been working together for years to address global health problems, climate change, food security, and disaster mitigation and response.
Two of the agencies’ big programs are LAUNCH and SERVIR. According to NASA, LAUNCH “is a global initiative to identify and support innovative work poised to contribute to a sustainable future and accelerate solutions to meet urgent challenges facing our society.” SERVIR was designed to help improve response to natural disasters in specific parts of the world.
