Workshop on the State of Land Data and Information in East Africa

27 Maio 2019
Mr. Michael Odhiambo

But within this data momentum, there are still many barriers and questions: Who can access the data, and how? What data is reliable? Who owns the data? What data is up to date? Can I use the data without inflicting harm?
