About the Eighth Plenary Meeting of UN-GGIM-AP


The three-day Plenary Meeting of UN-GGIM-AP is hosted in Canberra by the Australian Government and it is the first Plenary Meeting under the Presidency of Australia and since UNESCAP took over the secretariat function.

The Meeting provides an opportunity for members to discuss global and regional perspectives on the latest topics of geospatial information, as well as the implications of the Asia-Pacific Plan of Action on Space Applications for Sustainable Development (2018-2030).

The Working Groups on ‘Geodetic Reference Frame’, ‘Cadastre and Land Management’ and ‘Integrating Geospatial Information and Statistics’ will meet on the first day. On the other days participants will have the opportunity to join sessions on the topics of the Working Groups, as well as on the Integrated Geospatial Information Framework (IGIF), the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction and the Sustainable Development Goals.
