SSCCSE, The World Bank, UNOSAT, and Google are co-hosting
the 3rd South Sudan Community Mapping Event in Juba, on September 7th, 2011.
What does the event hope to accomplish?
Following the historic referendum in South Sudan, we are hosting an event to demonstrate the power of mapping to support the building of South Sudan, which is a huge region. Without basic geospatial information, it is difficult for the government, civil society, development partners, and all stakeholders to evaluate risks and current needs, target their efforts, and mobilize proper resources. During this day-long event, we hope to empower the South Sudanese community using Google Map Maker technology to help create comprehensive maps of the region.
The event is being organized by:
We've invited South Sudanese and others, from Juba, who have current local geographic knowledge of the country, to help map features they're aware of.
Can anyone attend the event?
Participation is by invitation only (see details here). Please check back for information about future events.
