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 three days training is aimed helping development partners to monitor and evaluate the activities of specific projects intended to support M&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&E/Researchers are able to 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.

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

Mode of payment

Payment shall be through electronic fund transfer to Africa Development Resources bank account 7 days prior to the commencement of the course
