GIS for Monitoring and Evaluation Course

Event. GIS for Monitoring and Evaluation Course

Venue: Indepth Research Services, Dodoma, Tanzania.

Event Date: 04th- 08th December 2017.



The training will help project managers apply GIS to monitor and evaluate the activities of specific projects in an effort to document positive outcomes, increase sustainability and develop effective solutions to problems discovered. Through this training, we will examine some ways we can use maps to define, measure and display project outcomes.
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.

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