I thought you or some of your OSM colleagues might be interested to go and
take part since I remember you telling me there are over 800 OSM volunteers
in the Philippines. The afternoon program will be nearer to you in Cubao.
I will be going to the morning in Ortigas.

January on an integrated approach to local governance and local development
and I intend to incorporate the idea of the UN making greater use of local
volunteer mapping groups to fill the gap in local knowledge.
