Flexible Mobile Land Technology Applications: Demonstrations and Lessons Learned

Ioana Bouvier

US Agency for International Development, United States of America

Ioana Bouvier is a senior geospatial analyst in the Land and Urban Office at USAID. She has over 15 years of experience in applying geospatial analysis, data science and technology solutions worldwide. At USAID, Ioana leads the development of “fit-for-purpose” land technology applications that have the potential to improve efficiency and reduce costs associated with land clarifying land tenure and systematic land registration. She focuses on building capacity for geospatial analysis and sustainable technology solutions that advance land and resources governance, support resilient cities and foster integrated development planning. She also uses geospatial analysis to generate and apply evidence for programs that improve land transparency, identify key rural-urban links, promote responsible land investments and safeguard vulnerable populations, and support land and resources governance for climate change, biodiversity and natural resources initiatives. Ioana has a master’s degree in Geographic Information Science for Development and Environment from Clark University, Worcester, MA and a bachelor’s degree in Geography and Environmental Science from University of Bucharest, Romania.
