Sixth High Level Forum on UN-GGIM
20-22 April 2020
Royal Holloway College, University of London, Windsor, United Kingdom
With an overarching theme ‘Changing the World – Geospatially’
, the Sixth High Level Forum on Global Geospatial Information Management will bring the global geospatial community together at the highest level to address and ensure that geospatial information has its widest and fullest use in service of social, economic and environmental development.
Participants will discuss the integration of geospatial knowledge, platforms and services to facilitate informed decision-making, and for empowering people to sustainably manage the Earth’s finite resources. In addition, the Implementation Guide of the Integrated Geospatial Information Framework
and the newest iteration of the Future Trends Report
will be introduced; both of which will be released at the Forum. Participants will also consider how the rapidly changing geospatial environment gives opportunities to accelerate progress towards delivering the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
The Sixth High Level Forum, the first to be convened in Europe, is expected to enable and drive national government agencies, the commercial sector, multilateral and international development organizations, academia and civil society to highlight the importance of geospatial information and technology to decision makers and the broader community. The Forum is connected with the 2020 Cambridge Conference
, which takes place from 22-24 April 2020 at the same venue.
Start date: Monday, 20 April 2020 | End date: Wednesday, 22 April 2020
