Two key programmes, namely the United Nations
2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development,
adopted by the General Assembly in September
2015, and the African Union Agenda 2063,
approved by the African Union in January
2015, further emphasize the need for a
global coordination mechanism for geospatial
information management (GIM).
The two Agendas have a lot in common and
are mutually supportive and coherent, while
Agenda 2063 is more specifically concerned
with the needs of Africa. At its meeting in April
2016, the Conference of African Ministers of
Finance, Planning and Economic Development
highlighted the two Agendas as key to the next
phase of Africa’s development and noted their
interrelationship.
