MDC technical support to FairTrade International
Jun / 2021 to Oct / 2021

The support provided by CartONG to FairTrade International in 2021 aims at building two updated forms to monitor the key performance indicators, coded into Kobo in both field languages (French and English), that will fit into the existing online platform (Impact Cloud) that Fairtrade international is using to monitor its West african Cocoa program (WACP). After the conception of the forms, CartONG trained and accompanied 25 staffs to ensure the quality of the data collection.

CartONG is also supporting FairTrade international in its digitalisation process, building a Kobo form that will help the standards & pricing unit to assess the price of Cocoa. CartONG will continue this process in 2022 and also follow-up the deployment and test of this new process.

Support in choosing an adapted MDC tool
Oct / 2020 to May / 2021

CartONG worked with Welthungerhilfe to conduct a benchmark of several Mobile Data Collection tools in order to identify the best ones to use at an organizational level. We brought technical and methodological support into this benchmark, especially working on defining, detailing, prioritizing and organizing the requirements as well as cross-checking and testing information provided by suppliers vis-à-vis the selected requirements. The purpose of this support, which continued in the first part of 2021, was to accompany Welthungerhilfe prior to the selection of an MDC tool and to ensure that valuable and reliable information was collected on solutions pre-identified to be the most suitable as per their needs.

To know more about the support provided, please check out our 2020 Annual Report. You can also discover the benchmarking of MDC solutions that was released by CartONG and Welthungerhilfe, with the support of AFD, at the end of this project here.
