I think the project is really helpful. This type of initiatives contributes in the development of our countries. the articles are sources of information to our Society and to our policymakers, they can use it and obtain ideas and apply them in our countries based in our reality. Also the report give us an image of whats happening in other regions.
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.
