ADE e Data4Moz estabelecem parceria para partilha de conhecimento Geo-Espacial

The National Agency for Geospatial Development, Public Institute (ADE - IP) and Data4Moz ( have established a partnership aimed at collaboration and cooperation in the sharing of knowledge and tools that will enable the government, investors, international support institutions and other stakeholders to make better decisions about development planning processes.

To this end, on Tuesday, March 14, the two institutions signed a memorandum of understanding that formally binds them for two renewable years. During this period, the aim is to collaborate in the collection, analysis, modeling, management and availability of relevant information on the Mozambican geographical space, on the different platforms available to them.

Data4Moz thus becomes ADE - IP's first public partner, in a relationship that will enable the interoperability of the systems used in each of the institutions, contributing to the country's sustainable development by promoting good integrated planning practices for informed decision-making, based on geospatial solutions.

The Director General of ADE - IP, Odete Semião, said after the signing of the memorandum that "this partnership will enable the agency's vision of supporting decision-making based on reliable and synthesized information to be carried out. We believe that the foundations are in place to contribute to the availability of information of the quality that will allow us to make decisions based on reliable data for the development of Mozambique."

Odete Semião also said that "ADE's challenge is to work on regulating institutional partnerships so that the data produced by the different players is effectively aggregated". "I think that the role of each one of us, both the government and the private sector, is to serve the interests of the communities and this partnership allows us to have that information which makes it possible to best assist the communities' wishes," she added.

The Chairman of Data4Moz's Board of Directors, Dino Foi, said that this exchange of knowledge between the two institutions will fill the gaps in data and information, to enable interventions in regions where there is a real need.

"We feel privileged to be the first company to establish a partnership with ADE on the terms defined. We're sure there will be many more opportunities, because there really is a need for information with the characteristics mentioned, in all areas, whether in health, education, management of natural phenomena, among others. We want to create synergies so that information from both sides can be shared with the communities." "We want to bring primary data in order to help National Directorates, Provincial Governments and even the Central Government to make decisions on current issues, such as natural disasters, agriculture and natural resources in general," said the Data4Moz CEO.

The National Agency for Geospatial Development, a public institute, has financial and patrimonial administrative autonomy, providing data and application hosting services, management, monitoring and evaluation of infrastructure projects, production of interactive maps, carrying out studies, institutional training, among others.
