The report brings the discussion on those themes to the local grassroots, policy and government officials who might not have a culture of community input or multistakholderims
I think the project is amazing.
For me it was important because it's a great opportunity to share information about a grassroot project globally. International character of reports make GISWatch unique: I don't know if there are any other opportunities to gather diverse experiences and specialists from different spheres.

The project is very valuable and provides fantastic insight to the subjects as it tries to get first hand information from the writers from/within the countries in question. I think this way it creates an alternative resource to those that are prepared by Western institutions by going to these countries for few weeks only. Therefore GISWatch provides a much more authentic information.
