The project is a great source of knowledge on different country perspectives on similar themes. I rely on GISWatch for research that I do on gender issues as it provides research on topical issues.The report development process provides a structure that authors can follow but still allows them to be flexible in their write up.

The project is very valuable and provides fantastic insight to the subjects as it tries to get first hand information from the writers from/within the countries in question. I think this way it creates an alternative resource to those that are prepared by Western institutions by going to these countries for few weeks only. Therefore GISWatch provides a much more authentic information.

I think that GISWatch is an unique project as regards the number of countries involved, and the variety of perspectives. But at the same time with a very precise focus, related to each issue and to the methodology proposed. The challenge is to find a story, a case widely en-richen the way in which the issues could be followed and understood.
