Adapting Information Management Covid-19 support
May / 2020 - Jan / 2021

This project aims at supporting the humanitarian sector in adapting its Information Management and Monitoring & Evaluation response to the Covid-19 crisis. As part of the project, CartONG will provide direct support to NGOs through (webinars, coaching sessions, and a hotline) as well as support to the sector through technical and methodological guidance (technical briefs, tutorials, tech watch findings), & feedback resources (case studies and lessons learned).

This project is run with the support of Groupe URD for the M&E component. We are also coordinating our action with MapAction, HOT and Translators without Borders in particular, as well as other H2H organizations to avoid duplicating our efforts.

Support to FairTrade Africa in their first implementation of MDC
Aug / 2019 - Dec / 2019

CartONG, through the request of Max Havelaar France, is supporting FairTrade Africa in their implementation of Mobile Data Collection for the follow up of their cocoa cooperatives in Cote d'Ivoire. The project started by a small assessment of the situation and comparison of tools that could best cater to these needs, followed by a preparation of the digitization of the process through mobile data collection that was then tested, piloted and improved accordingly with the FairTrade teams in Cote d’Ivoire in preparation for a full deployment.

Diagnostic, conception et mise en oeuvre d'un système pilote de gestion de l'information pour le consortium RESILAC mise en oeuvre par ACF, Care et le Groupe URD dans le bassin du lac Tchad
Apr / 2019 - Dec / 2019

Le projet et consortium RESILAC "Redressement Economique et Social Inclusif du Lac Tchad" a identifié au cours de sa phase d’amorçage le besoin d’améliorer la gestion de son information (également appelé Information Management ou IM en anglais). CartONG accompagne le Groupe URD en charge du "Système de suivi et d’évaluation des réalisations" sur la composante gestion de l'information.

Ainsi CartONG :

  1. réalise un diagnostic en gestion de l'information (toutes technologiques condonfus) afin de formaliser les besoins des parties prenantes, identifier les contraintes et opportunités existantes et proposer des scénarios de solutions
  2. déployera certaines recommandations formulées à l’issu du diagnostic (et par la suite formalisé sous forme de plan d’action et plan de renforcement) sur un ou deux sites pilotes pour tester leur pertinence, avant d’envisager leurs éventuelles déploiements à l’échelle du projet.
  3. assurera la montée en compétences des équipes concernées dans le(s) site(s) pilote(s).
MDC Lessons Learned paper co-produced with Tdh
Nov / 2018 - Aug / 2019

Written by CartONG, this paper reflects on five years of experience gained by Terre des hommes implementing MDC projects in its countries of operation worldwide. Its principle aim is to help field operations make the best use of MDC in their programs by summarizing the key lessons learned throughout these 5 years of MDC roll-out. It builds both on the institutional knowledge acquired over the years as well as on the experiences shared by three delegations (Iraq, Mali and Nepal) - deliberately different in terms of size, volume of operations, and types of interventions. This Lessons Learned paper also summarizes the path taken by the organization to scale up MDC over the years and the uses to which MDC is put, both by Tdh and by the wider humanitarian community. Lastly, it also details both Tdh and CartONG’s vision for MDC in the coming years.

MDC awareness-raising session for AFD
Dec / 2018

In 2018, a one-day awareness raising session was organized for AFD's Evaluation and Capitalisation division and Crisis and Conflict division on Mobile Data Collection. The session covered both an overview of the tools available and examples of the different types of use cases, but also a presentation of all the stakes that mobile data collection can represent in the development sector.

Information Management support for ACF France
Jan / 2018 - Dec / 2018

CartONG provided various Information Management support to Action Contre la Faim France in 2018. Our main support was dedicated to their Afghanistan mission where we deployed an expert for 3 weeks in October. The mission aimed at providing Information Management support to the team based in Kabul regarding digitization of some nutrition processes, data visualization with Business Intelligence tools, training sessions on various tools (Excel, Kobo, Sphinx and Power BI) and support on their data protection practices. Check out an example of the tools developed during the mission: a complaints and feedback mechanism dashboard built on Power BI.

In 2018, we also provided remote support to ACF France on Mobile data collection for their Nepal field operation, as well as gave a day of introduction to Geographical Information Systems during one of their regional training workshops in Dakar.

Information Management needs assessment (Solidarités International)
Jan / 2018 - Dec / 2018

In 2018, CartONG conducted two challenging Information Management (IM) needs assessment missions, during which we evaluated the IM policies, processes, practices and tools implemented by the Solidarités International’s teams in response to the refugee crisis in Bangladesh as well as the Syrian crisis.

For these rapid assessments of information management needs, CartONG interviewed the key players to evaluate their expectations, fears and difficulties, and reviewed the existing documentation and processes in place for the IM tools used by the local Solidarités’ teams as well as the available IM products. As part of these missions, we also facilitated workshops and conducted a review of the key existing project documents to identify the IM needs per activity and the potential constraints related to donor requirements. The deliverables of these two needs assessments missions were a report and a list of recommendations and suggested priorities. The support provided by CartONG in the Middle East had the particularity of taking place following the launch of a new  consortium (therefore still in its infancy), and was thus mostly focused on strategic aspects; whereas the mission in Bangladesh was an opportunity to identify the capacity-building needs of the local IM team which then led to a two-week training mission on various topics such as MDC, mapping and data protection.
