Need to Look Beyond 2030 SDGs Agenda


The opportunity of emerging technologies is rising significantly, especially with the promise of AI implementation, which can play a vital role in enhancing cost-efficiency as well as the qualitative and quantitative aspects of land administration around the globe.

Kadaster uses AI for multiple purposes. For example, we use text recognition for processing large amounts of incoming data. This way, we are able to quickly and efficiently make data available for society, at the same time limit human errors.

While it’s difficult to predict new possibilities that lie beyond the horizon, we see a role for AI in land measurement, customer interaction, and processing vast amounts of data.

Factual Decision Making

National geospatial agencies are at the forefront of providing communities with the tools to increase the quality of land management and decision-making. Both the quality and quantity of data analytics is improving, thanks to technological developments and international cooperation.

Fact-based decision-making is of utmost importance in building a robust and resilient society. Providing decision-makers with the tools and information to make the right decisions is key. Therefore, national geospatial agencies can make a difference in the years to come.

If we look five years down the line, we are looking at the end of the Sustainable Development 2030 agenda. We still have a long way to go, and the international geospatial community has a lot to offer. Now is the time to make our mark, not only for the 2030 agenda, but beyond.

Stakeholder Interactions

Societies are constantly changing. The challenges we face are also changing all the time. But change is not a negative development in itself. It also grants opportunities. Opportunities to connect with others, to learn from each other, and to implement the latest technological developments for the good of all.

Interacting with the people we serve and listening to their needs is critical. This way we form a bridge between high level decision-makers and the people. If the tools we provide reflect the needs of our citizens, we enable decision-makers to make the right calls.

An international geospatial ecosystem can only function if we align our leading technical and semantic principles. This enables us to connect and integrate systems, data, and most importantly people, across the globe.

The United Nations initiative of Global Geospatial Information Management (GGIM) is crucial for this endeavour. It brings together nations and people across the world and has accomplished a lot in the last decade.

“Fact-based decision making is of utmost importance in building a robust and resilient society. Providing decision makers with the tools and information to make the right decisions is key.”

Shared Values

We need to continue to look for common goals and values. Common goals like sustainable development and climate resilience can unite us.

The value of geospatial information and land registration is that it empowers ordinary people by providing them tools to improve their lives.

At Kadaster, we are fortunate to work with local partners all over the world to improve people’s livelihoods by introducing new land administrations. Exchanging knowledge and empowering people is the way to bridge divides, now and in the future.
