First Virtual Webinar - Conversations on the Integrated Geospatial Information Framework (UN-IGIF): Strategic Pathway 1: Governance and Institutions

24 April 2024|Event

The United Nations Integrated Geospatial Information Framework (UN-IGIF) serves as a foundational roadmap for enhancing geospatial information management globally. Its primary goal is to aid countries in developing, integrating, and optimizing their geospatial resources, thereby narrowing the digital gap, and fostering socioeconomic progress for all.

The purpose of this webinar is to equip diverse sectors within the geospatial community – including academia, public entities, private companies, non-profit organizations, research institutions, and regional initiatives in geospatial information management – with practical insights into the benefits of Strategic Pathway 1 on Governance and Institutions within UN-IGIF. This will be achieved by offering both an overview and practical examples of how Strategic Pathway 1 can be applied in real-world scenarios.

The key objectives of this webinar are to:

  • Provide an overview of Strategic Pathway 1 on Governance and Institutions within UN-IGIF.
  • Offer a specific country-level case study and insights related to Strategic Pathway 1 of UN-IGIF.
  • Facilitate collaborative discussions to address uncertainties and foster shared capabilities and experiences.
  • Encourage the use and implementation of UN-IGIF processes and principles.
