The roadmap will be elaborated taking into account the synthesis of the results from the thorough gap analysis, at the regional and the country level, to present an updated and valid overall picture of the gaps and needs in terms of capacity building, resources (including human), funding, coordination mechanisms. It will weigh the readiness and maturity of each country to address the identified gaps and pursue the means to cover the needs and establish the appropriate flow direction of further exchange of know-how and best practices. The roadmap will be identifying all regional challenges as they result from the collaboration with the regional stakeholders during the implementation of the GEO-CRADLE and will be setting the priorities for GEOSS and a potential regional initiative to cope with these challenges in an effective and collective manner.
