Mapping earth for sustainable development

The Nineteenth United Nations Regional Cartographic Conference for Asia and the Pacific (UNRCC-AP) was held at the ESCAP facilities in Bangkok on 29 October – 1 November

DESA’s Statistics Division organized the event titled “UN-GGIM Vision for Asia and the Pacific Region”. The main subject themes to be discussed are the geodetic reference framework for sustainable development; data sharing and integration for disaster management; and place-based information management for economic growth.

This is the first regional conference after the establishment of the global mechanism of Global Geospatial Information Management (GGIM), which will lead the region to discuss its new role as the GGIM-Asia/Pacific arm. Strong guidance from Member States on this GGIM vision for the region is expected.
