Background

ICIMOD has joined hands with the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) and Geospatial Media on the “Advancing role of geospatial knowledge infrastructure in world economy, society and environment” project to explore the value proposition of geospatial knowledge infrastructure and forecast its relevance with the future of the economy and society.

This virtual roundtable on the project is being organized to delve into the contexts and readiness for supporting a geospatial knowledge infrastructure. Discussions during the roundtable meetings will revolve around current geospatial data infrastructure, policies, institutional capacities, industrial capacity, and user capacity. The roundtable meetings will also explore various possible partnership networks, including government to government, government to private, government to multilateral, and private to multilateral agencies.
