CartONG provides GIS and mapping support to the CCCM (Camp Coordination, Camp Management) unit within the GDS section at UNHCR.
In 2017, such support involves developing new OPSMAPS and adding new functionalities to existing OPSMAP.
CartONG has been supporting the Public Health section of UNHCR since 2012 in the implementation of the SENS nutrition surveys (Standardised Expanded Nutrition Survey). The SENS nutrition surveys of UNHCR are deployed in 100 refugees sites each year, 95% of which are conducted on mobile phones. CartONG continuously works on improving the content of the modules of SENS.
CartONG was activated 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.
