Improving Spatial Data Services in the Republic of Moldova following EU standards

Project Description
The "Improving spatial data services in the Republic of Moldova following EU standards" Twinning project aims to contribute to further development of National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) in the Republic of Moldova, based on EU INSPIRE Directive. It will enable the Agency for Land Relations and Cadastre (ALRC) to assess constraints in managing geospatial data in a more efficient and sustainable way, and take corrective measures towards achieving this. As a final goal of this project, the National Spatial Data Infrastructure should be a functional tool for citizens, public institutions and economic operators in order to check relevant information regarding properties, infrastructures and environmental issues on any particular zone of the country. Furthermore, NSDI will provide reliable tool to the authorities for better planning capabilities in a broad range of sectorial policies, namely transport, environment and agriculture among others.
Specific Objective
To enhance e-government through improved spatial data sharing and cooperation among authorities in line with EU standards and best international practices.
