The "Strengthening CSOs' Information Management" project aims to professionalize French-speaking Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in the use and implementation of methods, tools and processes related to the different stages of the data analysis chain.
Co-financed by AFD for 3 years (early 2020 - late 2022) and implemented with the support of 10 partners, this project will make it possible for CartONG to continue its work in support of the sector by promoting the pooling and dissemination of new resources, both practical (tools, tutorials, training modules, etc.) and strategic (studies, etc.) to all humanitarian and development actors.Read more »
After ten years of ad hoc collaborations between CartONGand Solidarites International (SI), the two organizations decided to sign a Partnership Agreement to facilitate future activities in the next three years.
The agreement concerns the capacity building of SI teams on Information Management (IM), the running of studies, the provision of strategic advice and technical field support related to Information Management, as well as the development, configuration and deployment of IM tools.
In that vein, work has started at the very end of 2019 to support the Myanmar and Bangladesh field operations in the improvement of their IM practices and processes, that will continue for most of 2020 (learn more here and here).
