Venue: Foscore Development Center in Nairobi Kenya

GIS is a computer system capable of assembling, storing, manipulating and displaying geographically referenced information, i.e. data identified according to their locations. This training will present a practical guide for using a geographic information system (GIS) integrated with Monitoring and Evaluation

The five days training is aimed at helping development partners to monitor and evaluate the activities of specific projects intended to support M and E systems for sustainable programs and projects. The use of GIS in monitoring and Evaluation improves the effectiveness and communications of results to management, funding partners, and beneficiaries.

The integration of GIS in monitoring and Evaluation makes it possible to link or integrate information that is difficult to associate through any other means. With GIS M and E/Researchers can use combinations of mapped variables to build and analyze new variables. Presenting data in the form of a map helps to understand the significance of where, when, and by whom. By using the GIS to link data from multiple programs the training will make it possible to understand the individual programs better but also better understand the relationship between the programs. Spatial analysis techniques will also help with driving outcomes measures.

Who Should Attend?

The course is designed for representatives from government, project teams, NGOs, multi and bilateral development organizations, consultancies, etc, that are typically employed as project managers and directors, M and E specialists, technical specialists, and researchers.
