Fifth Session UN-GGIM: Americas - Regional workshop on integration of Statistical and Geospatial Information: from the dialogue to action

The regional workshop is jointly organised by United Nations Regional Committee on Global Geospatial Information Management for the Americas (UN-GGIM: Americas) and ECLAC

Ciudad de México / Mexico City, Mexico - 6-8 Nov 2018

Description

The main purpose of this activity is to strengthen integration and contribute to progress in the joint construction of statistical and geospatial information systems at each country level, convening the regional statistical community represented by the national focal points (NSO) of the Statistical Conference of the Americas SCA-ECLAC, and the regional geospatial community represented by the national focal points of UN-GGIM: Americas.

In a complementary manner, it seeks to share the diagnosis and agree on the strategies for the integration of geospatial and statistical information, and the use of geospatial information, statistics and Earth observation data to support the implementation of the 2030 Agenda in the Member States, at a national and regional level.

This activity is developed as part of the UN-Development Account Programme on Statistics and Data – Tranche 10.
