Latest Activities for Information Management

3-year collaboration on furthering Information Management at Action Contre la Faim
Sep / 2020 to Aug / 2023

CartONG and Action contre la Faim have signed a 3-year partnership agreement to further their collaboration. The partnership agreement that will run from 2020 to 2023 details the general principles of collaboration between our two organizations around common goals and mutual commitments as well as more operational aspects.

In particular, it aims to develop the use of cartographic products within Action Contre la Faim by making CartONG’s mapping service available to ACF’s operations. In particular, our team of cartographers will be able to provide emergency support to ACF in the event of a humanitarian crisis, in what is called “rush mode format” as we can already do for other partners such as MSF or ACAPS.

More generally, this partnership also aims to provide ACF's teams with better support in the area of program data management (or Information Management), either through capacity building for their teams or strategic advice and support.

Adapting Information Management Covid-19 support

Dashboard for Mexico's Ministry of Education follow-up of post-Covid19 return to schools

Diagnosis, design and implementation of a pilot information management system for the RESILAC consortium implemented by ACF, Care and Groupe URD in the Lake Chad basin
Apr / 2019 to Dec / 2019

The RESILAC (Inclusive Economic and Social Recovery of Lake Chad) project and consortium identified during its start-up phase the need to improve the management of its information (also called Information Management or IM). CartONG is supporting Groupe URD in charge of the operational M&E system (système de suivi et d'évaluation des réalisations) on the information management component.

To this end, CartONG :

  1. is carrying out an information management diagnosis (all technologies combined) in order to formalize the needs of stakeholders, identify existing constraints and opportunities and propose solution scenarios
  2. will implement some of the recommendations made at the end of the diagnosis (and subsequently formalized in the form of an action and reinforcement plan) on one or two pilot sites to test their relevance, before considering their possible deployment at the project level.
  3. will ensure the skills development of the teams concerned in the pilot site(s).
