The Permanent Secretary for the MLMR, Mrs Raijeli Taga and her team participated in the 11th Session of the Committee of Experts on Global Geospatial Information Management (UN-GGIM) which was virtually held from 23, 24 and 27 August.

The 11th session of the (UN-GGIM) met to address several emerging and critical issues related to geospatial information management globally. The UN-GGIM consists of government experts that reports on matters concerning geography, geospatial information, survey and other related topics.

The objective of the UN-GGIM is to play a leading role in setting the agenda for the development of global geospatial information and to promote its use to address key global challenges. The UN-GGIM provides a forum of networking and coordination among member states, and between member states and international organizations.

Fiji has benefitted as one of the six countries to have been afforded the opportunity to pilot the United Nations 11th Tranche Development Account Project 1819D “Strengthening Geospatial Information Management in Developing Countries towards Implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”, in implementing the Integrated Geospatial Information Framework (IGIF) through the development of country level action plans.

Through the project Fiji has gained much insight in identifying its critical areas of need and gaps for geospatial information management capabilities. Additionally, addressing these needs and gaps by referencing the IGIF and its implementation guide paves the way to practical and effective strategies.

Important achievement by Fiji for the UN-GGIM
The UN-GGIM recognized the growing demand for more precise positioning services, the economic importance of global geodetic reference frame and the need to improve the global cooperation within geodesy.

It was also through this forum- on 26 February 2015 that Fiji was able to table the resolution to the United Nations General Assembly which was adopted as the UN resolution on Global Geodetic Reference Frame for Sustainable Development.

There were more than 200 delegates from the United Nations (UN) member states as well as observers from institutions, professionals, researches and academic organizations or associations who have shown keen interest in geospatial or statistical information management.
