World Bank Funded SDI/GIS Developments

Document Title
  • Ghana - National Framework for Geospatial Information Management (NAFGIM, 1998 - 2003)
NAFGIM was a component in a wider Natural Resource Management Project of the Ministry of Lands Forestry and Mines. NAFGIM was conceived as an interdisciplinary, inter-agency and a cross-sector network of institutions and agencies engaged in the production and use of geospatial information.
  • Lesotho - Lesotho Integrated Transport Program (2004 - 2010) - P075566
Main objective was to improved access to services and market opportunities, through a more complete, safe and affordable transport system which would contribute to the Government's poverty reduction and economic growth strategy.
Implementing ministry was the Ministry of Public Works and Transport (MoPWT). To facilitate monitoring and evaluation the project created a number of spatial data sets and used GIS to link the MoPWT GIS with other relevant sources of poverty/social/environmental data in the country (e.g. location o f key services such as clinics, schools, markets, transport, population and socio-economic conditions o f villages in impact zones, etc) to assist in poverty targeting and road safety initiatives.
  • Zambia - Environmental Information Network and Monitoring System (EINMS, 1998-2003)
4th component of the Environmental Support Program (ESP) whose goal was to provide environmental information and decision support to stakeholders involved in ESP, establish the foundation for a national Environmental Information System (EIS) and facilitate public access to environmental information. SDI focus was to promote data custodianship, development, sharing and standardization; also capacity building among stakeholders
  • Central Africa - Regional Environmental Information Management Program (1997 – 20003)
An inter-country project to improve planning and management of natural resources in the Congo Basin by providing the various stakeholders with appropriate information on the environment. Countries involved: Cameroon, CAR, Congo, DRC, Equatorial Guinea, Chad and Gabon. SDI related component involved the production and update of various environmental spatial data: Aerial photos, satellite imagery, topo and thematic maps etc. This component was later dropped in preference for more data processing. Successes include the setting up of tools to archive and manage information; capacity building; established partnerships; information sharing.
