The event will continue the discussions and consultations from the first high level forum in 2011, provide follow up on issues from the second meeting of the Committee of Experts on GGIM (August 2012) and address other current critical matters like capacity building and inter-disciplinary cooperation, data sharing and integration frameworks and the management of new and expanding sources of data (Big Data) to support sustainable development. This Forum provides an opportunity to the Member States and stakeholders from the geospatial information community to share and learn from each other to support local, regional and global sustainable development initiatives.
