CartONG has been helping Terre des hommes with their Information Management and data collection strategy since 2014, by evaluating tools, compiling studies and benchmarkings (some of which have been released on the CartoBlog), counseling them on how to help the organisation augment its skills and developing training kits and communication documents for its staff, as well as helping with the technical recruitment of IM/MDC staff. 

Beyond this, a HQ hotline is available and two 2-day awareness raising sessions were organised in December 2016 and January 2017 to train Terre des hommes HQ Desks and Thematic specialists on what MDC could bring to their operations and also on knowing how to adapt a standard organisation form from one context to another (through XLS forms).

A Lessons Learned paper building on 5 years of MDC implementation at Terre des hommes is expected to be released in 2019.

UNICEF - Support RRM CAR en Gestion d'Information et Analyse de Données
Jun / 2014 to Jul / 2014

La République Centrafricaine connait depuis 2012 une deuxième guerre civile. Le 24 mars 2013 Bangui est prise par la Séléka, il y a alors un regain de tension dans tout le pays. C’est suite à ces évènements qu’a été mis en place en République Centrafricaine le Mécanisme de Réponse Rapide (RRM). Fonctionnant avec des échéances de 6 mois, le 2éme RRM a débuté en avril 2014.

L’objectif initial du RRM est de conduire des enquêtes multisectorielles (MSA) rapides, puis de mettre en place la réponse rapide à travers ses partenaires. Les activités du RRM se divisent en 3 temps : Alertes – MSA – Activités. Les premières méthodologies de collecte de données et de partage de l’information mises en place pour les MSA n’étaient ni standardisées ni organisées par manque de temps. Le RRM se restructure depuis mai 2014 avec une nouvelle équipe de coordination qui promeut et met en place des outils standardisés pour ses partenaires.

Le RRM CAR en date de la mission est composé de la cellule de coordination UNICEF ainsi que de 5 partenaires opérationnels : Action Contre la Faim, ACTED, International Rescue Comitte, Première Urgence et Solidarité Internationale.

C’est dans ce contexte que CartONG s'est déployé a Bangui, en partenariat avec le bureau régional de l’UNICEF de Dakar, a apporté un support technique en termes d’évaluation et d’amélioration des outils d’analyse de données ainsi que sur la compilation des informations récoltées depuis le début de la crise.
