What we do

The Netherlands Coordination Office (NCO) for the United Nations Spatial Data Infrastructure (UNSDI) is the national link between UN organizations and Netherlands UNSDI partners.

The NCO discloses unique knowledge, services and high-quality geographic information products from Netherlands UNSDI partners to the international UNSDI community and partner countries, in order to contribute to Food Security, Agricultural Development, Water Management, Economic Development, Peace and Safety, Tropical Forest Monitoring, Humanitarian Response, Environmental Protection, the realization of the Millennium Development Goals, and to combat the impact of climate change.

The NCO manages the national UNSDI-GeoNetwork portal, making geographic data (e.g. GIS data, GIS maps) available from all linked UN organizations and national UNSDI geographic information suppliers, including the Netherlands NSDI.
