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 deriving outcomes measures.

To achieve set objectives, the training will also explore the technical topic of Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) methods that are used worldwide in many development projects and the application of technical tools of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) for project monitoring and management.

Target Participants

This training on GIS in Monitoring and Evaluation is designed for professionals in projects/programs who want to apply GIS to improve their monitoring and evaluation systems.

Course Duration

Online    7 Days

Classroom-based    5 Days
