Success in GIS

A survey of 18 African countries, published by the RICS in 2009, found that the serious constraints to Making GIS Work in Developing Countries were (i) lack of support for GIS from their senior managers and decision makers, (ii) the lack of awareness from these people of the benefits that GIS could provide and (iii) the lack of personnel with appropriate skills and training. The lack of data was also identified as a serious or very serious hindrance. IMHO this seems to be the case with the Caribbean as well.
