6 Programmes Scope The general purpose of the UNSDI-NCO programmes is aiming at bridging the gap between users and suppliers of geo- information. The various programmes are addressing different needs, ranging from Small and Medium size Enterprises (SMEs), Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs), Regional Organizations, UN Organizations to National Governments.

10 The Corporate Governance Implementation Programme The CGI programme takes care of the coordination and execution of geo- information disclosure activities for large enterprises, companies or multi- nationals in order to fulfil their Corporate Governance goals. The programme covers the entire chain of information generation to management support and comprises of a number of components. Depending on the needs one or more can be implemented. The components are: Indigenous capacity building Capacity building is established through education and training courses, putting emphasis on local staff of SME's and NGO's in developing countries dealing with management and/or monitoring of natural resources. Education and training in the application areas mentioned above as well as ICT related to GIS and GeoNetwork. The stimulation of local economic activities contributes at the same time to the poverty alleviation goal. Supply of basic technical equipment In order to secure continuation of local operations, basic technical equipment is supplied, including necessary application software, e.g. PC's, GIS software, internet connection, receiving equipment.

11 The Corporate Governance Implementation Programme Set-up of organizational infrastructure On-site support in the set-up of the local organizational infrastructure, harmonization of activities with local decision makers and natural resource managers. Geo-information data generation Depending on the application area, different types of geo-information are needed in order to support local decision making. This may range from infrequent large scale low-resolution satellite imagery to very frequent small scale thematic maps. The operational generation of these products will be taken care of. Examples are remote sensing satellite data reception and processing or airborne campaigns with dedicated sensors. Transfer of required geo-information The supplier of geo-information will be connected to GeoNetwork (as in the DL programme) as to enable the local application of the data. Additionally a broadcasting link may be etablished for data dissemination purposes in case local internet connections can not be made available at the user's premises.

12 The Direct Link Programme The DL programme provides an operational connection between SMEs, institutes, universities, NGO's and GeoNetwork in order to disclose their information or services to the world-wide user community. To this end services are provided in order to install GeoNetwork software and create the interface between the existing data infrastructure and GeoNetwork. Examples are: universities and institutes supplying research result like application models, thematic maps, imagery or publications;universities and institutes supplying research result like application models, thematic maps, imagery or publications; SME's supplying specific products or description of services like decision support systems, irrigation schemes, wave height and spectrum data, geocoded remote sensing data, actual crop maps or other thematic maps.SME's supplying specific products or description of services like decision support systems, irrigation schemes, wave height and spectrum data, geocoded remote sensing data, actual crop maps or other thematic maps.
