Spain’s proposal for a robust GeoCode addressing  development project based at the UPU, including the budget and GADA’s letter of support addressed to the Member Governments of the UPU.

Letter of support GIS Proposal to Congress

If adopted by the UPU Congress this Fall the project can potentially provide more addresses, for less money, in more countries, more quickly, than has ever been accomplished before.   We are asking our members and supporters to express their support for this resolution to the officials who will represent their country at the UPU Congress this Fall.  Feel free to forward our letter with its attachments to them.
