Capacity Building

Theme: Bridging the Skill Gap


India is one of the fastest-growing major economies and is currently the world’s fifth-largest economy. The country has charted how to build self-reliance, and capacity building is one of the critical factors contributing to it. Capacity building will empower the Indian economy by taking control of the country’s development, leading to increased self-reliance and sustainability.

Innovations in geospatial and frontier technologies are fundamentally reorienting the industry, and there is an immediate need to gear the process toward ongoing innovations. This requires a set of dedicated professionals who are proficient in advancing technologies and can smoothly handle them. Today, a striking demand-supply gap of trained skill forces is creating challenges for businesses and slowing the pace of geospatial automation. Capacity building through skill development will play a crucial role in the growth of the geospatial economy in India.
