The Institute of Local Government Studies, which aims at building capacity for local governance, has launched the Centre for Geospatial Intelligence Services (CGIS) and the Local Governance Observatory (LGO).

Centre for Geospatial Intelligence Services (CGIS) is an Institute of Local Government Studies (ILGS), state-of-the-art facility, aimed at delivering solutions for local government in, service delivery, public policy and governance and public information and community engagement.

CGIS will also focus on GIS training and research, mapping and surveying, Geospatial property valuation and rating automation as well as monitoring local governance using geospatial technology.

According to Dr Darimani, geographic information helped institutions and individuals to act in reference to the needs of other actors and ecology and therefore lauded ILGS for a laudable initiative that marked the beginning of technology in mapping and surveying.

“One of the key objectives of decentralization is to ensure effective and efficient service delivery and participatory development, our long years of experience working on decentralization and with local governments have shown that application of GIS technologies holds great potential for improving effective and efficient delivery as well as participatory development,” Dr Darimani said.
