About the course
A lot of projects and programs have failed to have the impacts they were designed to have because they did not incorporate GIS in their project operations. A geographical information system (GIS) is a collection of hardware software, and procedures to collect, manage, retrieve, manipulate, analyze and display spatial data. This training workshop will equip participants with the ability to perform multi criteria analysis of WASH, model wash projects, identify Most at Risk Populations, use GIS as a monitoring tool for WASH activities in line with SPHERE minimum standards.
WASH specialists, M & E Experts, Public health,Program Manager, Students and Risk assessors, water engineers.
