United Nations General Assembly Adopts the Global Geodetic Reference Frame for Sustainable Development

On 26 February 2015, the United Nations General Assembly adopted its first geospatial resolution recognizing the global importance of location and positioning to the UN Member States. The resolution on the Global Geodetic Reference Frame for Sustainable Development was brought forward by Fiji with the co-sponsorship of a further 52 Member States. The resolution was introduced under the General Assembly's Sixty-ninth session: 80th plenary meeting: "1. Report of the Economic Social Council item 9 (a) Report of the Economic and Social Council (b) Draft Resolution":

An outcome of three years of efforts by UN-GGIM and the Global Geodetic Reference Frame Working Group, the resolution confirms the importance of positioning geospatial information to address global challenges, and demonstrates the critical leadership role of UN-GGIM to the Member States.
