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).

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).

Maps from here & abroad
May / 2018 to May / 2019

"Maps from here & abroad" aims to foster the social inclusion of the migrant population in France through two main kinds of activities: participatory mapping on OSM during mapathons, and sensitive mapping workshops, meaning the freehand drawing of maps based on the affect one has for a space.

The objective of this initiative is to offer these activities to the residents of emergency accommodation centers or CADA, everywhere in France in order to raise awareness about digital cartography, but also on an artistic and creative form of mapping. This project will be implemented with the support of several partner organisations such as Bibliothèques sans frontières, Aurore, and many more, as well as CartONG volunteers.

Data protection "quick wins" project

Implémentation d'un outil de suivi des parcelles agricoles
Jun / 2017 to Mar / 2018

Dans la cadre d’un projet de lutte contre la déforestation en Côte d’Ivoire, CartONG a été financé par l’AFD pour mettre en œuvre un outil de suivi des parcelles forestières et agricoles des bénéficiaires de NITIDÆ (ex-Rongead/EtcTerra) dans la région de la Mé. Ce projet a permis l’implémentation de la suite d’outils GeoPoppy, également pour la première fois, par CartONG à l’occasion d’une mission de deux semaines sur le terrain.

Au-delà de cette mise en pratique, CartONG a également été sollicité pour aider NITIDÆ à améliorer son système de Suivi-Evaluation en effectuant un diagnostic du système en place et en émettant des recommandations d’amélioration – à savoir, le cadre logique, les indicateurs utilisés, les outils de collecte de données primaires – ainsi que des procédures qui lui sont associées. A cet exercice s’est ajouté un travail plus général et assez complexe, de compilation de suggestions portant sur l’amélioration de l’accompagnement en Suivi-Evaluation que l’AFD offre à tous les partenaires qu’ils financent.

Digitization for ICRC
Jan / 2017 to Dec / 2017

CartONG wasd twice in 2017 by ICRC to support them by generating data in OpenStreetMap and preparing databases that were then exploited by the ICRC Water & Sanitation teams to plan their operations.

The first project was led in Goma (Democratic Republic of the Congo), where ICRC needed map to plan new water distribution infrastructures. A second similar project was conducted in October to map the cities of Diffa and N’Guigmi in Niger using OpenStreetMap. Leanr more by checking out our 2017 Annual Report.

Emergency mapping for ACAPS
May / 2017

Since May 2017, CartONG has been working in support of a new partner, ACAPS. ACAPS is an independent humanitarian information provider which supports the aid community by providing up-to-date data on key crises around the world. In the event of a crisis, the analysis and information work carried out by ACAPS allows humanitarian, as well as local and national actors, to better understand and consequently better respond to the needs of the affected population. As part of this mission, ACAPS regularly issues bulletins called "Briefing Notes" containing situation maps. CartONG, in its capacity of humanitarian mapping specialist, thus provides support to ACAPS by producing a significant number of these maps that complement and illustrate the bulletins by highlighting affected areas, hot spots or key figures of a crisis.
