The COVID-19 pandemic has created new challenges for decision-makers, but it also has highlighted growth directions for the data management systems. Reliable spatial data, information about real property units have proved to be crucially important types of data for the tasks of responding to the pandemic. In addition, the process of digitalization of land management, accelerated by the current challenges, has also increased the level of expectations towards geospatial data and registries’ information.
The participants of the webinar " NSDI, geospatial data and technology: The role of geospatial and cadastre agencies in the COVID-19 pandemic response " were invited to discuss the following topics:
- How do existing geoinformation systems and services contribute to the response to the pandemic and to more effective decision-making in general?
- How are the requirements for geoinformation systems and data changing?
- What areas of development of geoinformation systems become a priority?
This is the third and final webinar of a series of joint WPLA – FAO webinars on “Land Administration during the COVID-19 pandemic”. Conclusions, outcomes and learning from these exchanges will be presented at the twelfth Session of the UNECE Working Party on Land Administration on 31 May and 1 June 2021.
Simultaneous interpretation in English and Russian were provided.
