Efficient addressing systems are essential to reach the targets of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Addressya (previously Map Project) contributes to at least six of the 17 goals.
Many countries still lack a countrywide address infrastructure to enable communication between individuals, governments and organisations.
Addresses provides individuals with the opportunity to have a legal identity, enable them to exercise their civil rights and gain access to private and public services.
A well-functioning address system provides structure, organisation and transparency, and helps improve government planning, budget allocation and follow up. It supports effective birth registration, formalisation of businesses and transparent land and property registry.
With an all-encompassing address system, companies and organisations are able to reduce costs, increase efficiency and reach new markets to service the whole population.
