Latest Activities for Capacity Building

Support in choosing an adapted MDC tool
Oct / 2020 to May / 2021

CartONG worked with Welthungerhilfe to conduct a benchmark of several Mobile Data Collection tools in order to identify the best ones to use at an organizational level. We brought technical and methodological support into this benchmark, especially working on defining, detailing, prioritizing and organizing the requirements as well as cross-checking and testing information provided by suppliers vis-à-vis the selected requirements. The purpose of this support, which continued in the first part of 2021, was to accompany Welthungerhilfe prior to the selection of an MDC tool and to ensure that valuable and reliable information was collected on solutions pre-identified to be the most suitable as per their needs.

To know more about the support provided, please check out our 2020 Annual Report. You can also discover the benchmarking of MDC solutions that was released by CartONG and Welthungerhilfe, with the support of AFD, at the end of this project here.
