Abstract

The UN Expert Group on the Integration of Statistical and Geospatial Information (UN EG-ISGI) was established by the UNSC and UN-GGIM with a mandate to develop an international statistical geospatial framework. The Global Forum on the Integration of Statistical and Geospatial Information, convened in New York in August 2014, identified that “there is an urgent need for a mechanism, such as a global statistical-spatial framework, to facilitate consistent production and integration approaches for geo-statistical information. In July 2018, the UN EG-ISGI team of experts published the standard “Global Statistical Geospatial Framework: Linking Statistics and Place”. The document describes the effects of integration, provides detailed recommendations for all countries and describes key approaches and practices that can be applied at the national level.
Integration of data allows providing the ability to monitor the achievement of sustainable development goals (SDGs); ensure data availability at the regional, subregional and global decision-making levels; provide the ability to exchange data in a unified form; apply data in new projects and solve research problems; increase potential for investment, etc. Location (spatial reference) is the link between the processes taking place in society, the economy and the environment.
All Central Asian countries have a different level of preparedness for the implementation of the standard, a different level of development of competencies and regulation. The study contains a comprehensive analysis and assessment of the level of preparedness of the countries of Central Asia (Kyrgyz Republic, Republic of Tajikistan, Republic of Uzbekistan) for the integration of geospatial information, statistics and land accounting data, information on practices and recommendations.
This publication aims to review the regulatory policy of each country, to identify current level of practice, formulate recommendations in the national, regional and global contexts about government police, law, technology, human capital perspective.
