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”: http://www.un.org/Docs/journal/En/lateste.pdf.
