Database and mapping remote support for the permanent secretariat for NGOs (SPONG) of Central African Republic (Bioforce)
Apr / 2020 to Dec / 2020

As part of a Bioforce project aiming at strengthen local capacities to work for the resilience of populations and crisis response in Central African Republic (CAR), CartONG is supporting Bioforce to provide structural strengthening of the Permanent Secretariat of NGOs (SPONG) in CAR.

This support-advice mission, carried out following an information management assessment that took place in 2019, and initially planned via a field mission (canceled due to the Covid 19 crisis), was carried out completely remotely. Its objective was to provide technical support for the operationalization of the Excel databases of the SPONG as well as to support the SPONG teams in the use of the mapping tool QGIS to establish 3W maps.

Mobile Data Collection and GIS trainings (Bioforce)
Jan / 2012

CartONG intervenes every year in different Bioforce Institute trainings (in particular project managers, WASH coordinators and Logisticians) in Lyon to heighten awareness on the uses a good mobile data collection and mapping can bring. These trainings are 1 to 2 days long.

CartONG also gives trainings for Bioforce partners in the field, such as in 2017 for the Diakonie NGO in Chad- The training was composed of 3 days on project cycle management, with a strong emphasis on M&E (given by a Bioforce consultant) and of 2 days on MDC given by a CartONG staff​.

In 2018, we also organized our first 5-day Mobile Data Collection training at the Bioforce Institute in Dakar (Senegal). At this occasion, staff from 6 countries - Niger, Central African Republic, Mali, Burkina-Faso, Cameroon & Guinea Conakry - and 5 humanitarian & development organizations were trained.
