GIS and Statistical Analysis for WASH Programmes

Course date:
13/02/2023 to 17/02/2023
5 Days
Course fee:
USD 900, KES 80,000


GIS technology can be integrated in the implementing and monitoring of target based interventions in water sanitation and hygiene (WASH). The technology helps creating model of complex environment in a simpler and easier way that enhance understanding of the environment, paving way for proper and informed decisions. Free open source GIS software for both desktop and web application is opening up possibilities for capturing and processing geographical data, and then publishing maps via the internet.
