As part of an approach facilitated by F3E, Groupe URD and CartONG are supporting Asmae to implement a M&E system for its international operations. The aim of the project is to improve and strengthen Asmae's intervention strategy, to facilitate program management and to improve the visibility of Asmae's project achievements and results externally. While Groupe URD is providing the methodological support, particularly in the definition of indicators, CartONG has designed a data collection, data consolidation and data visualisation mechanism based on Excel Online.
CartONG, in consortium with MapAction, has been selected by UNICEF for a long-term agreement, to provide GIS & IM support to their operations around the world from 2020 to 2022. Working with UNICEF’s headquarters, country offices and partners in different parts of the globe, we focus on helping with geospatial data collection and management, mapping, knowledge management and capacity building.
CartONG provided a 2-day training on "Data protection in humanitarian assistance" to 13 member organizations of the German network of humanitarian and development organizations VENRO. Targetting humanitarian project and programme managers, the goals of the workshop were for the participants to:
CartONG conducted a 3-day GIS training to 12 members of operational departement of Secours Islamique France, in January 2020, which was funded by Le Group'.
The aim of this training was to make participants aware of the added value and challenges that mapping represents for an organization. In addition to the theoretical aspects, part of the training was dedicated to the handling of some tools such as uMap.
In 2019, CartONG was selected to support HI on a GIS assessment and initial support to launch a GIS strategy. For this purpose, CartONG evaluated the needs in terms of GIS by interviewing the key players to identify their current usages, and practices, as well as their expectations and difficulties in terms of geodata and geoproducts and reviewed the GIS-related documentation and tools used by HQ and field operations.
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.
