GIS strategic support for Humanity & Inclusion
Jun / 2019 to Aug / 2020

In 2019, CartONG was selected to support HI on a GIS assessment and initial support to launch a GIS strategy. For this purpose, CartONG evaluated the needs in terms of GIS by interviewing the key players to identify their current usages, and practices, as well as their expectations and difficulties in terms of geodata and geoproducts and reviewed the GIS-related documentation and tools used by HQ and field operations. The result of this needs assessment, was a report that CartONG sent to Handicap International giving an overview of the current situation and needs, with a list of short and long term recommendations and potential scenarios. These recommendations and scenarios were then discussed with the HI team to help them think through their options for a GIS strategy to take off in the organisation, according to its financial, technical, HR constraints and the opportunities that a greater use of geodata and geoproducts would bring for certain key sectors of HI and different support functions. Learn more in this article.

The collaboration continued in 2020 with the development of an internal dashboard to support HI in the adaptation of their operations to the Covid-19 crisis (by compiling key pandemic figures and information on the HI operations’ status & vulnerabilities in relation to the pandemic). CartONG also intervened on the of GIS and data protection in one of their internal seminars with field teams.
