71 AGNU: Cuba at Fourth Committee vs. the US Embargo

Despite the economic hardships mainly as a result of the cruel economic, commercial and financial Embargo imposed against our country, Cuba attaches a growing importance to space sciences and their applications. Particular emphasis is placed on the prevention of disasters such as cyclones, flooding, penetrations of the sea and forest fires, as well as to the studies of hazard, vulnerability and risk (PVR), among others. Accordingly, we would like to highlight the importance attached by our country to the Early Warning Systems for Disasters.

71 UNGA: Cuba at the Fifth Committee vs. the US Embargo

However, such political will is hampered by the economic, financial and commercial Embargo imposed by the United States against Cuba.
