Surveyor, Wood and Partners Consultants New Zealand
The “sparkle in his eyes” when Jordan Friis talks about his volunteer work inspired his nominator to be “proud and confident for a bright future ahead for all young surveyors volunteering their time and skills.”
Jordan worked for the Volunteer Community Surveyor (VCS) Program, a joint competence-based program with Global Land Tool Network (facilitated by UN-Habitat) and the International Federation of Surveyors Young Surveyors Network. As the first VCS, Jordan supported Huradec Nepal, a local NGO, with statistical time division multiplexing. His project supported three communities in Nepal towards speeding recovery from the 2015 earthquake and improving tenure security through the application of fit-for-purpose land administration solutions. Jordan earned his bachelor’s in surveying at the University of Otago.
