International Conference on “National Spatial Data Infrastructure: Towards a Digital Society” (Cancelled)

2–4 Apr 2020 | Baku, Azerbaijan

Important notice

The global situation with the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) has been developing rapidly over the last weeks with numerous new cases raising significant concerns at a global level. To ensure health and safety for all and those around us, the Organizing Committee of the Conference has decided to cancel/postpone the International Conference “National Spatial Data Infrastructure: Towards a Digital Society” until further notice.

The organizers are currently exploring the option of holding the conference later in the year. We will share information on possible alternative dates later.

We very much regret this unfortunate turn of events and appreciate your understanding

The State Service on Property Issues of the Republic of Azerbaijan (SSPI) together with the UNECE Working Party on Land Administration (WPLA), World Bank, Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN, UN-GGIM and UN-GGIM Europe is organizing an international conference in Baku, Azerbaijan, from 2-4 April 2020. The theme of the conference is “National Spatial Data Infrastructure: Towards a Digital Society”.
Digital technologies are profoundly changing our societies. They act as a catalyst to development and, if harnessed, can help reverse negative trends in the UNECE region. Still, good practices are fragmented, and rooted to a particular often local context which does not permit the region to fully benefit from the multitude of opportunities. Considering those bounding conditions, the organizers of the workshop would like to bring together a variety of stakeholders, representing the public sector, civil society, academia and business, in order to (i) exchange good practices, (ii) establish partnerships, and ultimately (iii) learn from each other.
