Geospatial information – advanced education and competence needs

22 March 2022

10:00-12:00 (CET)


The UNECE Working Party on Land Administration, jointly with the University of Gävle and with the support of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), organized this webinar on the alignment of advanced education and competence needs in geospatial information. This is critical in order to ensure sufficient and appropriate knowledge when capitalizing on digital transformation, emerging technologies, data revolution and the geospatial community’s great potential to contribute to meeting many of the global and local challenges. In the first session, competence requirements for both the private sector and national geospatial information authorities were highlighted and discussed in two presentations and a panel. This was followed by presentations from academia and global actors on curricula and collaborations with external actors to secure education fit for the future. The webinar also included interactive polls and Q&A sessions.
