REACH Initiatives is a leading humanitarian initiative providing granular data, timely information and in-depth analysis from contexts of crisis, disaster and displacement. The work of REACH directly feeds into aid response and decision-making by providing accessible and precise information on the humanitarian situation of crisis-affected populations.
Created in 2010, REACH is a joint initiative of IMPACT Initiatives, ACTED and the United Nations Operational Satellite Applications Programme (UNOSAT). REACH activities are conducted in support and within the framework of inter-agency coordination mechanisms at field and global levels to enabling more efficient aid planning and response.
The REACH initiative aims to improve data quality in surveys, and has been implemented by ACTED. This project consisted of the second phase of the BRACE survey on Android phones, with CartONG's support through trainings for local staff in South Sudan.
CartONG provided support in the coding of the questionnaire, the training of the enumerators and of the survey managers on the ground and the set up of the survey local server/database. Technical backstopping was offered after the field mission.
