Many countries still lack a countrywide address infrastructure to enable effective communication between individuals, governments and organisations.
Addresses provide individuals with the opportunity to have a legal identity, enable them to exercise their human and civil rights and gain access to private and public services.
A well-functioning address system is fundamental for an inclusive society. It provides structure, organisation and transparency, and helps improve government planning, budget allocation and follow up.
Without addresses business opportunities are missed. With an all-encompassing address system, organisations are able to reach new markets and service the entire population.
