The project has unique value as it provides a global but detailed overview of different key topics. It helps people to get the arguments and diverse/complementary detailed views about topics.
In the long term, some of the topics should be revisited to monitor evolution and update the content to keep it relevant
The project is a great source of knowledge on different country perspectives on similar themes. I rely on GISWatch for research that I do on gender issues as it provides research on topical issues.The report development process provides a structure that authors can follow but still allows them to be flexible in their write up.
