In conjunction with the 10th UNCSGN, the 27th Session of the UN Group of Experts on Geographical Names (UNGEGN) will be held on 30 July-10 August, one day prior and one day after the Tenth United Nations Conference on the Standardization of Geographical Names.
The UNCSGN is held every five years, and UNGEGN meets between the Conferences to follow up the implementation of resolutions adopted and to ensure continuity of activities between Conferences.
The primary objective of the Conference is to encourage national and international geographical names standardization, to promote the international dissemination of nationally standardized geographical names information, and to adopt single Romanization systems for the conversion of each non-Roman writing system to the Roman alphabet.
