GIS-based technologies for local level development planning

  • Executing agency: UN/DESA Division for Sustainable Development
  • Start date: 1 October 1995
  • End date: 31 December 1999
  • Partners: UNDP, Ministry of Science and Technology
  • Total budget: USD 426,295

The project aims at enhancing the capacity of local level authorities to store, update and utilize social and natural resource data needed for planning and decision making. To this end a PC based GIS system will be fully developed by the Department of Science and Technology and tested in situ in a few pilot areas. The experience gained will form the basis for dissemination of the technology and the approach to all districts nationwide.
