Prof. Carmine Gambardella, UNESCO Chairholder on Landscape, Cultural Heritage and Territorial Governance, President and CEO of the Benecon University Consortium, including five Italian Universities, (www.benecon.it) has the pleasure to inform you that the UNESCO Chair at Benecon developed a Web-GIS including all the geographic data and information related to UNITWIN/UNESCO Chairs worldwide. We kept info by the UNESCO database and geo-localized each UNESCO Chair in order to find it on a Web-GIS platform and create a global network. On the Web-GIS platform it is possible to find geographical information, which can favorite international cooperation and also contribute to strengthening North-South-South cooperation, and collaborate around the Sustainable Development Agenda 2030. In the Web-GIS, it is possible to create thematic maps for scientific sectors or areas of interest and joint programmes, which can facilitate the search of partners involved in common goals.
The Web-GIS includes information not included in the UNTWIN Platform for around 40% of the 830 UNESCO Chairs and UNITWIN cooperation programmes in over 110 UNESCO Member States. Moreover the interested UNESCO Chairs can update the platform sending additional information to the UNESCO Chair at Benecon to info(at)benecon.it.
