Welcome to the MVA
The Moon Village Association (MVA) has been recently created as non-governmental organization (NGO) based in Vienna. Its goal is the creation of a permanent global informal forum for stakeholders like governments, industry, academia and the public interested in the development of the Moon Village. The MVA fosters cooperation for existing or planned global moon exploration programs, be they public or private initiatives. It comprises of more than 600 participants to MVA activities from more than 65countries and 30 Institutional members around the globe, representing a diverse array of technical, scientific, cultural and interdisciplinary fields.
MVA partners with non-space organizations to promote international discussions and formulation of plans to foster the implementation of the Moon Village and is creating international, national and regional networks to engage civil society around the world.

Recommended Framework and Key Elements for Peaceful and Sustainable Lunar Activities
The Recommended Framework and Key Elements is designed as a guide for well-balanced lunar projects and offers recommendations for how to implement safe and sustainable lunar activities through norm- setting, coordination, and management. It builds on principles established in international space law, relevant UN outer space treaties and soft law documents, and can be downloaded here:
Lunar Commerce Portfolio
In November 2022, the MVA Lunar Commerce and Economics Working Group published the first version of its Lunar Commerce Portfolio report. The report provides a comprehensive overview of nine lunar markets, including their respective customers, potential suppliers, and value chains. The report and its accompanying market model also identify market drivers, and produce revenue estimates for four lunar economic scenarios. The portfolio’s preliminary estimates indicate that near-term revenue for commercial lunar companies is likely to be derived largely from government contracts. However, long-term revenue could display a far greater share of commercial-commercial market interactions, particularly if lunar tourism and lunar resource markets for the production of propellant become viable and prosperous. The Lunar Commerce Portfolio was presented at the COPUOS STSC on February 7.
