De facto standard for UNSDI - GeoNetwork

UNGIWG consultant Jelle U. Hielkema made recently awareness on the open source international standards based geospatial information management capacity, GeoNetwork, developed by FAO since 2001 with support and participation from the World Food Programme (WFP), UNEP and the UN-Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) and which is now widely accepted as a de facto standard for UNSDI, both within and outside the UN system.
The attached article describes this capacity in some detail and furthermore are you advised to consult
www.geonetwork-opensource.org and www.fao.org/geonetwork for further information.
