Standardization of Street Number and House Address System Completed by NGES Program
Nepal Geomatics Engineering Society (NGS) organized a program on Addressing System in Nepal in collaboration with Regional and Urban Planners Society of Nepal.
The main theme of the program was to discuss and strategize about standardization of road number and house address system in Nepal. This program was supported by Asia Foundations Dayton for Development Program and Nepal Flying Lab collaborated.
All government and private sectors participated in this program. Officials from the Ministry of Urban Development, Ministry of Land Management, Ministry of Cooperatives and Poverty Alleviation, General Post Office, Changunarayan Municipality, Tokha Municipality and Damak Municipality participated in the program.
Besides, experts in geomatics engineering from NGS, urban planning experts from RUPSON, and representatives of leading private organizations like Maps, Street Maps, Digi Nirman participated in the event. It provided a comprehensive and inclusive platform to address system development.
The event served as a platform for sharing experiences, which also gave national and local government representatives an opportunity to share their experiences, insights and challenges. Representatives of Changunarayan Municipality and Damak Municipality addressed the systems using drones and online GIS platforms.
Similarly, the General Post Office presented how it is using the Google Plus code for the address. This exchange of knowledge helped the participants to identify current best practices in addressing methods, capacity building in municipalities, jurisdictions and administrative bodies to identify challenges such as regulation, operation and reform.
Arun Bhandari, President of Nepal Geomatics Engineering Society, expressed his gratitude to all the participants and collaborators for their active participation in the program and emphasized the decisive role of standardized addressing system in logistics, public services and overall development in Nepal.
