CartONG trained experts from Groupe URD’s permanent team to carry out an assessment of information management in 3 of the 4 operational countries (Chad, Cameroon and Nigeria). The assessment included semi-structured interviews, collaborative workshops to map the flow of data, the observation of practices and a self-administered questionnaire to evaluate competencies.

In keeping with the main recommendations that emerged from the assessment, Groupe URD will be supported by CartONG, and will focus on designing a minimal information management framework for the consortium, developing a ‘data culture’ in order to establish a centralised data management approach and allow the main data to be consolidated visually in a dashboard to help steer the project.
