Following the first strategy of 2013-2015, CartONG worked together with MSF Switzerland in defining the evolution of GIS in MSF-CH to support the movement for the period of 2016-2019. The strategy was extended into 2020 for a fifth year.
Since 2007, CartONG have intervened 4 times from 1 to 5 days each time to train Solidarités International staff on Mobile Data Collection or Geographical Information Systems.
For instance, in 2017, we intervened at Solidarités International’s field technical coordinators’ week during one day to raise awareness on the use of Geographical Information Systems.
CartONG has been supporting the Public Health section of UNHCR since 2015 for the large-scale deployment of an annually-run Knowledge, Attitudes, Practices survey in 180 refugee camps - helping to define the strategy, with the development of substantial training kits, the encoding of the survey and related analysis tools. Our support also involves field training and implementation missions. Here is a short overview of the key achievements since 2015:
CartONG set up and has been managing since 2015 a community of Terre des hommes users on data collection and analysis, using Slack as a tool.
