08-02: Strengthening professional ethics in the land sector
Worldwide, Regional and local initiatives to regulate professional ethics
National Society of Professional Surveyors, United States of America
Professional ethics under pressure, how to cope with technical developments
CLGE (Council of European Geodetic Surveyors), Switzerland
The CLGE, NSPS and FIG proposes to intensify the efforts amongst their members in the field of professional ethics.
We recommend to emphasize the professional ethics during the whole of 2019. One pertinent action would be to organize the World Bank Round Table in this field.
CLGE suggests three short papers about the subject with the aim to spark the discussion during a subsequent Round Table:
- Worldwide, Regional and local initiatives to regulate professional ethics
- Professional ethics under pressure, how to cope with technical developments
- Ethics, from theory to practice
