Dear colleagues,

Adopted in 2015, Agenda 2030 outlines 17 diverse set of goals that touch
several domains, yet are systemically interconnected and entwined with each
other. Any shift or change in one segment can and will impact several
others. Which is why it’s crucial for multiple stakeholder communities to
work collectively to be successful. What is required is coordination,
communication, and cohesiveness of policies and program implementation that
can be built upon reliable systems, tools and technologies.

Geospatial technologies with its ever-growing reach and impact offers an
ideal solution for creating infrastructure and system that can help
integrate datasets from a diverse range of sources to provide smart
analytics for decision making and effective communication. Acknowledging
and aligning potential value of geospatial technology for Sustainable
Development Goals, *Geospatial World Forum
<http://www.geospatialworldforum.org/>* shall host a two-day international
conference*Geo4SDGs: Addressing Agenda 2030
<https://geospatialworldforum.org/geo4sdgs/>* on *January 18-19, 2018*
at *HICC,
Hyderabad, India*. The conference is supported by *United Nations Global
Geospatial Information Management Expert Group,* *Group on Earth
Observations, Google Earth Outreach, Radiant.Earth, ICIMOD, Bill and
Melinda Gates Foundation, Dutch Kadaster and World Resources Institute*.
The conference themed, *‘Geo-knowledge conduit to SDGs success’*, aims to
provide a platform to bring collaboration and liaison among government
agencies, commercial sectors, multilateral and international development
organization and the civil society through initiating detailed discussions.
The conference aims to bridge the gap between the geospatial community, the
IT community, the policy makers and the pursuers of the SDGs.

We are happy to share the panelists for Geo4SDGs
