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.

In alphabetical order, the 10 partners of the project are:

  1. Action contre la faim
  2. Bioforce

Data collaborative on WASH in DRC
Nov / 2019 to Oct / 2020

Following the success of the data collaborative project in the Democratic Republic of Congo organized in 2017-18 by CartONG and OpenStreetMap-DRC on health-related data, a similar initiative is being launched in 2019 on Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) data.

This project is being launched with the support of the Agence Française de Développement (AFD), following the PILAEP 2 project (Promotion of Innovative Modalities for Access to Drinking Water), which aims to set up sustainable drinking water supply systems for populations in the suburban districts of Kinshasa and Bas Congo not served by the national water supply authority.

The PILAEP 2 project, in collaboration with several partners including the DIAL laboratory and the INS-RDC, has enabled significant data collection and analysis work (particularly for evaluation purposes in a results-based management approach). In order to ensure that access and updating of this data is sustainable, particularly for local actors, AFD wanted to support a sustainable collaboration approach in the DRC and Kinshasa in particular.

The objective of this approach will be to establish an inventory of actors, data and barriers in order to encourage sharing, and to work together to analyse these data. To this end, stakeholders will be encouraged to rely on existing resources within their various organizations, public authorities, but also open data platforms and in particular OpenStreetMap. A pilot field mission will also be organised to test, with interested partners, the methodologies developed together. The provisional timeframe:

Diagnosis, design and implementation of a pilot information management system for the RESILAC consortium implemented by ACF, Care and Groupe URD in the Lake Chad basin
Apr / 2019 to Dec / 2019

The RESILAC (Inclusive Economic and Social Recovery of Lake Chad) project and consortium identified during its start-up phase the need to improve the management of its information (also called Information Management or IM). CartONG is supporting Groupe URD in charge of the operational M&E system (système de suivi et d'évaluation des réalisations) on the information management component.

To this end, CartONG :

  1. is carrying out an information management diagnosis (all technologies combined) in order to formalize the needs of stakeholders, identify existing constraints and opportunities and propose solution scenarios
  2. will implement some of the recommendations made at the end of the diagnosis (and subsequently formalized in the form of an action and reinforcement plan) on one or two pilot sites to test their relevance, before considering their possible deployment at the project level.
  3. will ensure the skills development of the teams concerned in the pilot site(s).
Support of CARE Haiti on participatory mapping methodologies
Apr / 2019 to Aug / 2019

CartONG supported CARE's team in Jeremie, Haiti, as part of the "Vil nou pi si pou fanm yo" ("Our city is safer for women") project, an initiative funded by UN Women to identify and map unsafe or high-risk places for gender-based violence in 7 neighborhoods of the city of Jeremie, using a co-construction approach with youth and women communities living in these target districts.

Within the framework of this project, CartONG's role was to provide support in participatory mapping, first as part of a two-week field mission in Haiti, then as part of a post-mission remote follow-up to CARE's team in Jérémie. To this end, CartONG developed a methodology of participatory mapping workshops adapted to the specific needs of the project centered around the uMap tool.

The maps produced as part of this project are intended to be used as awareness-raising tools for Jeremie's security and justice stakeholders, as well as on a larger scale, for all the city's youth and women's communities.

Data collaborative project in Senegal with Healthsite.io
Jan / 2019 to Aug / 2019

With funding from the Digital Square program of PATH, CartONG has collaborated with the Global Healthsites mapping project to test the new features of the platform, which aims at sharing open data on heath facilities via OpenStreetMap. To do so, CartONG has implemented a field mission in Senegal together with the company Geomatica and the local OpenStreetMap community to survey exhaustively all the facilities in the Saint-Louis département. The field mission was followed by a workshop in Dakar to launch a "data collaborative" approach and encourage the sharing of health data between stakeholders (UN agencies, NGOs and government).

MDC Lessons Learned paper co-produced with Tdh
Nov / 2018 to Aug / 2019

Written by CartONG, this paper reflects on five years of experience gained by Terre des hommes implementing MDC projects in its countries of operation worldwide. Its principle aim is to help field operations make the best use of MDC in their programs by summarizing the key lessons learned throughout these 5 years of MDC roll-out. It builds both on the institutional knowledge acquired over the years as well as on the experiences shared by three delegations (Iraq, Mali and Nepal) - deliberately different in terms of size, volume of operations, and types of interventions. This Lessons Learned paper also summarizes the path taken by the organization to scale up MDC over the years and the uses to which MDC is put, both by Tdh and by the wider humanitarian community. Lastly, it also details both Tdh and CartONG’s vision for MDC in the coming years.
