An assessment of the developing Abu Dhabi Global Environmental Data Initiative (AGEDI) was conducted by Mark Sorensen with ESRI/GISTEC at the request of Mr. Majid Monsouri, ERWDA Undersecretary, This review includes an onsite engagement upon which a series of observations, issues, structural principles and recommendations and a preliminary work plan for the synergistic alignment of the current programs to optimize commonalities and leverage the organization's investment in the environmental data issue was developed.
This information is intended as initial input to the program development process. It is fully expected that the issues and recommendations summarized here will require additional dialog and refinement in the formulation of a final strategy.
