      GIS for Monitoring and Evaluation Course training

      Dear all,
      RE: GIS for Monitoring and Evaluation Course
      FineResults Research Services would like to invite you to high impact training on GIS for Monitoring and Evaluation Course to be held in Nairobi from 9th-20th November, 2020.

      Course Name: GIS for Monitoring and Evaluation Course
      Venue: FineResults Research Training Centre, Nairobi, Kenya
      Date: 9th-20th November, 2020.
      Cost: USD 1600
      Online Registration: REGISTER HERE

      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.
