The ICA was present during the 37th session of the General Conference of UNESCO, November 2013, Paris. Anne Ruas run a booth and gave a talk to present the activities of our association during the Non Governmental Organizations event. The role of map and geographical information for development and education was particularly emphasized. Having a better, quicker description of our world, its resources, its events, is a major importance.

The ICA is a leading international organization that plays an important role to improve the expertise and processes to make the information more readable and more accessible for all. Different contacts were taken with other organizations from Mali or Kenya such as SIL International which deals with the studies of minority languages and cultures around the world.
