Implémentation d'un outil de suivi des parcelles agricoles
Jun / 2017 to Mar / 2018

Dans la cadre d’un projet de lutte contre la déforestation en Côte d’Ivoire, CartONG a été financé par l’AFD pour mettre en œuvre un outil de suivi des parcelles forestières et agricoles des bénéficiaires de NITIDÆ (ex-Rongead/EtcTerra) dans la région de la Mé. Ce projet a permis l’implémentation de la suite d’outils GeoPoppy, également pour la première fois, par CartONG à l’occasion d’une mission de deux semaines sur le terrain.

Au-delà de cette mise en pratique, CartONG a également été sollicité pour aider NITIDÆ à améliorer son système de Suivi-Evaluation en effectuant un diagnostic du système en place et en émettant des recommandations d’amélioration – à savoir, le cadre logique, les indicateurs utilisés, les outils de collecte de données primaires – ainsi que des procédures qui lui sont associées. A cet exercice s’est ajouté un travail plus général et assez complexe, de compilation de suggestions portant sur l’amélioration de l’accompagnement en Suivi-Evaluation que l’AFD offre à tous les partenaires qu’ils financent.

CartONG a présenté le projet et l'outil aux chefs de projet de l'AFD à Paris en janvier 2018.

Information Management and Mobile Data Collection Support for the Cash Consortium Irak
Jan / 2017 to Mar / 2017

CartONG supported the Cash Consortium Irak (CCI) in improving and streamlining its data collection, management and visualisation systems.

CCI partners have so far provided cash assistance to over 10,000 newly displaced households and conflict affected vulnerable households across nine governorates including Baghdad, Kerbala, Salahaddin, Kirkuk, Dohuk, Ninewa, Diyala, Erbil and Sulaymaniyeh.

Setting up the tools (for data collection and analysis) for health center and school evaluation for Tdh
Sep / 2016

CartONG developed a large part of the mobile and analysis components of FACET, a facility monitoring tool for Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) services in schools (WINS) and in health facilities (WIH).

The tools are based on Kobo/ODK for mobile data collection and  on a Power BI dashboard for online visualisation of indicators and an Excel offline dashboard for more advanced analysis. 

The WASH in Health Facility Evaluation Tool (FACET), jointly developed by Terre des hommes, Eawag and CartONG with support from the UNICEF/WHO Joint Monitoring Programme (JMP), is based on globally recognised indicators and is suitable across the continuum of humanitarian and development interventions.

In 2017, CartONG also designed an online dashboard with Power BI linked to the FACET WASH Health Facility (see an example with test data) and School evaluation mobile data collection tools (here).

In 2018, CartONG helped build the new version of the FACET mobile data collection and analysis tools, based on a review of the needs and also an update of the key JMP indicators on which the tools are based.
