The Fourth Session of the United Nations Committee of Experts on Global Geospatial Information Management (UN-GGIM) will be held from 6-8 August 2014 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York.
The Fourth Session of UN-GGIM will bring together senior executives from national geospatial information authorities within Member States, and international geospatial experts from across the globe. Discussions and outcomes will further recognise and determine the critical role of geospatial information management and the need for strengthened collaboration and joined initiatives, to advance the development and use of geospatial data and tools to support global sustainable development.
The United Nations Committee of Experts on GGIM welcomes the participation of Member States and relevant international organisations and entities to its Fourth Session as it continues to move forward in fulfilling its mandate to enhance collaboration and support the use of geospatial information to promote sustainable development globally.
In order to assist travel plans and attendance, the Secretariat would like to inform participants that, as an action arising from the third session, a UN-GGIM Expert Group will be convening a UN Global Forum on the Integration of Statistical and Geospatial Information in conjunction with the fourth session of UN-GGIM.
