Since 2007, CartONG have intervened 4 times from 1 to 5 days each time to train Solidarités International staff on Mobile Data Collection or Geographical Information Systems.
For instance, in 2017, we intervened at Solidarités International’s field technical coordinators’ week during one day to raise awareness on the use of Geographical Information Systems.
This activity is to develop the use of mobile technology in surveys and monitoring programs for Public Health Section, especially for the Standard Expanded Nutrition Survey (sens.unhcr.org)
These one day seminars organised twice a year correspond to a community of practises composed of medium-sized NGOs that meet to exchange on information management practises, tools and methodologies. 13 NGOs are part of this community at this date.
CartONG has been supporting the Public Health section of UNHCR since 2015 for the large-scale deployment of an annually-run Knowledge, Attitudes, Practices survey in 180 refugee camps - helping to define the strategy, with the development of substantial training kits, the encoding of the survey and related analysis tools. Our support also involves field training missions as well as implementation missions.
CartONG has been supporting Solidarités International delegations since 2015 with a hotline helping operations under 24h with their conception dilemmas, their choice of tools or their MDC strategy
