INTRODUCTION

Evidenced based policies for sustainable development and better lives call for better data. Improving the capacity of people involved in data collection, analysis and report writing in ensuring quality data is of significance. Following the changing data environment from use of paper in capturing data to use of digital innovation, there is need to train actors involved in data collection to help them adapt to the upcoming innovations and technologies. Some of the data that are collected through the new technologies include geospatial data, mobile phone, administrative data and citizen-generated data among others. This 5 days course will equip participants with knowledge on research design, designing data collection tools in mobile data collection enabled software, GIS and remote sensing, exporting data to various data collection software, data analysis and interpretation.
