Data readiness pilot project in South Sudan to support Covid vaccine delivery through COVAX
Apr / 2021 to Jul / 2021

As Covid vaccines started to arrive in low- and middle-income COVAX participant countries, successful vaccination programs in those countries were dependent on geographic data to help identify priority population groups and to plan efficient "last mile" vaccine delivery. South Sudan was identified as a pilot project to assess which data was needed and implement good practices for other countries that will receive the vaccine. The support provided by CartONG consisted of data cleaning and setting up a data model and was conducted in collaboration with MapAction.

Participatory mapping support
Feb / 2020 to Jun / 2021

CartONG worked with SCET and EPFAM on a preliminary assessment that will be included in a regional action plan designed to improve tourism development in Mayotte. As part of this diagnosis, CartONG facilitated a participatory mapping workshop in October 2020, with SCET during a short field mission. This workshop was organized to consult some of the inhabitants of Kawéni about their leisure activities. During the workshop, the participants were encouraged to share information about what they are doing during their free time and to locate leisure activities on a map. The workshop was also an opportunity for the local community to receive a short introductory training to Mobile Data Collection, the data then collected has been integrated in an online interactive map. Further consultation activities have been on hold due to the pandemic, but the project will continue into 2021.

CliMigra Form training sessions
Nov / 2020 to Mar / 2021

CartONG is supporting the CliMigra_Form program, which is deployed through a partnership between the University of Paris 8 Vincennes-Saint Denis (France) and the University of  Paris Khartoum (Sudan). This project aims to develop training in participatory and citizen inquiry on two topics specific to the Sudanese context: climate and migrations.

In 2020, CartONG conducted 2 remote training sessions for a team of French and Sudanese social science and geography researchers and students, in order to help them understand how participatory and subjective mapping methodologies may be used as a way to collect both qualitative and quantitative data during a field research. Additional guidance on participatory and subjective mapping methodologies will be provided in 2021.
