Africa has made great strides in recent years to develop its space capabilities. From agricultural applications to improving health services and education, space technology has become an indispensable component in today’s modern information society and contributes to the sustainable development of many African nations. With a growing network on the continent, SGAC Africa continues to embark on numerous outreach programmes, competitions and space education initiatives. Efforts to expand the SGAC African network have been successful, allowing African countries, not previously represented at SGAC, the opportunity to develop their space sector through participation with SGAC.

Home to SGAC headquarters and place of origin, the European region is at the center of the organisation’s activities. Because of its proximity to many United Nations' organisations (e.g., UNESCO in Paris, UNIDIR in Geneva, and UN OOSA in Vienna), SGAC's European activities often are policy driven. SGAC participates in many conferences, UN committees, and space policy reviews and publications in the region.
