    The fundamental knowledge and the awareness gap which exists within many key policy areas is indeed a major barrier to the implementation of both EU policy, and technology. Although the importance of this issue is recognised, the investment of manpower and finances remains relatively small compared to the investments in technology development, which is often never implemented due to public discourse. Engaging the general public requires a better understanding and communication among the economic, political, social and scientific actors.

    In 2014, the European regional branch of the UN Global Geospatial Information Management (UNGGIM Europe) was set up. One of its main objectives is to build harmonised reference data for Europe, in order to contribute to sustainable development goals.


    The efforts of EU countries in the implementation of the INSPIRE Directive are a useful starting point for setting out to achieve the UNGGIM Europe objectives. However, EU legislation is not mandatory in Eastern European partnership countries, whose specificities need to be taken into account.
