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.

Digitization for ICRC
Jan / 2017 to Dec / 2017

CartONG was activated twice in 2017 by ICRC to support them by generating data in OpenStreetMap and preparing databases that were then exploited by the ICRC Water & Sanitation teams to plan their operations.

The first project was led in Goma (Democratic Republic of the Congo), where ICRC needed map to plan new water distribution infrastructures. A second similar project was conducted in October to map the cities of Diffa and N’Guigmi in Niger using OpenStreetMap. Leanr more by checking out our 2017 Annual Report.

Emergency mapping for ACAPS
May / 2017

Since May 2017, CartONG has been working in support of a new partner, ACAPS. ACAPS is an independent humanitarian information provider which supports the aid community by providing up-to-date data on key crises around the world. In the event of a crisis, the analysis and information work carried out by ACAPS allows humanitarian, as well as local and national actors, to better understand and consequently better respond to the needs of the affected population. As part of this mission, ACAPS regularly issues bulletins called "Briefing Notes" containing situation maps. CartONG, in its capacity of humanitarian mapping specialist, thus provides support to ACAPS by producing a significant number of these maps that complement and illustrate the bulletins by highlighting affected areas, hot spots or key figures of a crisis. Learn more in this news.

In 2018, CartONG supported ACAPS’s mission for 6 displacements and refugee crisis (in Uganda, Syria, Afghanistan, Burundi, Democratic Republic of the Congo and Nigeria); at the occasion of 4 natural disasters (volcano eruption in Papua New Guinea, flood in Malawi, cyclone in Somalia and typhoon in The Philippines) ; in 3 contexts of outbreaks (Nigeria: Lassa Fever, Zimbabwe: Cholera, DRC: Ebola) and during the Venezuelan crisis in September.

 

GIS & mapping support for Camp Coordination, Camp Management (UNHCR FICSS)
Jan / 2017

CartONG provides GIS and mapping support to the CCCM (Camp Coordination, Camp Management) unit within the FICSS section at UNHCR.

In 2017, such support involves developing new OPSMAPS and adding new functionalities to existing OPSMAP.

Following the work of previous years for the CCCM Cluster, in 2018, the ISMI (IDP Situation Monitoring Initiative) tracking dashboard was further enhanced and a new OPSMAP was developed in support of the ISIMM (IDP Sites Integrated Monitoring Matrix) project, both for North-West Syria context. ISMI dashboard has been remarkably improved after the first version delivered in 2017. This tool visualizes the Internally Displaced People (IDP) movement data collected by the cluster, who is responsible for updating the data through CKAN platform. It now includes animated movement layer, filter options through dynamic charts and data exports. ISIMM OPSMAP was deployed in 2018. Similarly to ISMI, and as a new feature in relation to older OPSMAPs, this version is connected to a CKAN platform, which allows the data owners to update it easily without requesting web developers.

 

Implementation of water point data collection & monitoring in South Sudan (ACF-US)
Apr / 2016 to Jan / 2017

This project helped ACF-US and governmental partners to set up and maintain over time the Water Information Management System of South Sudan. The solution chosen to ensure than field teams could update the information on a regular basis was Akvo Flow.

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.
