10    Education and Training (Capacity Building)

The ISDI will generate a need for people with specific skills or types of knowledge. For example skills / knowledge in the following areas may be necessary :-

  • GIS
  • Web services and systems
  • Standards
  • Data base management
  • Legal issues
  • Policy and strategy formulation
  • Integration of spatial data bases with document management systems
  • Network development and management
  • Production of manuals and protocols
  • Data collection and coding
  • Communication and liaison.

Without an adequate skills / knowledge base the development and roll-out of the ISDI would be slowed.
