During the 24th Conference on Postal and Delivery Economics, Mr Alex Pigot (CEO of Addressing the Unaddressed) presented the GO-Line project. This is a humanitarian initiative that aims at helping the approximately 1 billion people living in slums without a unique postal address, and an uncounted number of people having an address which is an unnumbered dwelling in a rural village or simply a PO boxMore precisely, through the introduction of a new address element – the GO-line (a code that represents the geo coordinates of a single building), the project aims at ensuring unique addresses for citizens.
