Has this initiative info been sent to the OpenGeospatial Consortium? They've a number of resources in the form of standards development, and participants who might find it of interest. Also, the OSGEO community might be a good place to advertise this.

UN Open GIS Initiative – Open Source Geospatial S/W for the UN
As the open source geospatial software becomes a fundamental basis of GIS applications, there is a strong demand from the UN for many peace keeping operations. In order to respond to this demand, we have launched the UN Open GIS initiative since March 2016. The objective of the initiative is to identify and develop open source geospatial software and services that meets the requirements of UN operations, taking full advantage of the expertise of mission partners including partner nations, technology developed by contributing countries, international organizations, academia, NGO’s, private sector. Three teams (called Spirals) have been actively working to achieve this objective. The first team (Spiral I) aims at developing and deploying an open source geospatial information infrastructure for the UN as well as a geo-portal. The second team (Spiral II) provides the capacity building programs on open source geospatial software to the UN staffs. The third team (Spiral III) intends to implement open source geospatial analysis tools for divers UN operations. We are also planning Spiral IV for geospatial data collection task. In this webinar, the background, motivations, visions, and roadmap of the initiative will be presented as well as the activities and technical aspects of each spirals. The UN Open GIS Initiative is open, your contributions are always very much welcome.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
