The 5th Session of the Regional Committee of UN-GGIM Americas was held within the framework of the Latin America Geospatial Forum in Mexico City, from 6 to 8 November 2018. On this occasion, a representative of the UN-GGIM Secretariat introduced the SALB programme to 85 statisticians and geospatial managers from 33 Member States from the Americas. The presentation highlighted the current global situation on the availability of geospatial data on administrative boundaries, as well as the objectives and benefits of the SALB programme and its latest status. It is hoped that the presentation will increase awareness and participation to the SALB programme by Member States in the Americas and that more data on administrative boundaries will soon be available for the region.
