EuroGeographics and Kadaster, The Netherlands Renew Agreement to Provide Secretariat for UN-GGIM: Europe

EuroGeographics has renewed its Service Level Agreement with The Netherlands’ Cadastre, Land Registry and Mapping Agency (Kadaster) to provide secretariat services for UN-GGIM: Europe.

 

The membership association for the European National Mapping, Cadastre and Land Registry Authorities, which has UN-GGIM: Europe observer status, has supported the Executive Committee in delivering its objectives since 2015 with Carol Agius fulfilling the role of Administrator. In addition to ensuring that relevant organisations in the European UN Member States and European Institutions are well informed about its activities, EuroGeographics also organises the annual plenary as well as Executive Committee and Working Group Meetings.

 

Chair of the UN-GGIM: Europe Executive Committee, Bengt Kjellson from Sweden said: “UN-GGIM: Europe is a mechanism for discussion and decision-making at an international political and policy level. EuroGeographics has extensive experience of bringing organisations together to find solutions to common challenges and we are very pleased that it will continue to provide a secretariat for our work.”

 

Vice Chair of Chair of the UN-GGIM: Europe Executive Committee, Dorine Burmanje from The Netherlands added: “The Netherlands is responsible for providing a secretariat to UN-GGIM: Europe and has done so very successfully through its agreement with EuroGeographics. Its renewal will not only ensure the smooth running of UN-GGIM: Europe activities, but will also further our work to demonstrate the power of location.”

 

President of EuroGeographics, Ingrid Vanden Berghe, commented: “It is a great privilege to fulfil the role of secretariat for UN-GGIM: Europe. We’re delighted to continue to support its work which contributes to the more effective management, availability and integration of geospatial information in Europe. For the mapping agencies that we represent, UNGGIM is an important forum to advocate their contribution to the better understanding and sustainable development of our world.”

 

The Service Level Agreement was signed at EuroGeographics 2016 General Assembly Budapest, Hungary.
