Street Addressing is an invaluable tool for city management, although often misunderstood. It provides an opportunity to (a) create or update a map of the city that can be used by different municipal departments, (b) conduct a systematic survey that collects targeted information on the city, its services, businesses and population and (c) set up a database on the built environment that is, too often, unavailable. Information collected is associated with an address, thus making it locatable. This database is key in countries with rapidly growing urban areas where local authorities have lost control of the urbanization process. 

The objective of the course is to raise awareness of the importance of street addressing for city management, service delivery and maintenance, public asset management, land management, municipal resource mobilization, and business development.
