The Child Status Network will be holding a webinar to discuss the mapping of orphans and vulnerable children programme data for decision making, which will focus on the challenges and successes of mapping orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) data and populations as well as advanced uses of mapping and GIS analysis for OVC programme support.
The presentation draws on experiences from a March 2012 MEASURE Evaluation data demand and use workshop with stakeholders working with OVC programs in Uganda, Tanzania and Ethiopia. During the workshop participants discussed using GIS to facilitate the use and understanding of their program data, and participants were introduced to the use of free, open-source GIS software called QGIS. This presentation will not include a tutorial on GIS. Rather, it will be an introduction to the value of mapping and spatial analysis for orphans and vulnerable children program support with examples from these three countries.
The discussion will be held at 9am EST on September 26th and will be led by Jen Curran from the MEASURE Evaluation Geographic Information Systems (GIS) team. Visit Measure Evaluation for more information on connecting to the webinar.
