This week, IFPRI and Africa RISING/ILRI organized a one day training for Africa RISING Ethiopia researchers on a Project Monitoring and Mapping Tool (PMMT).

The PMMT is intended to help project monitoring efforts within the Africa RISING Program.

It has been designed to inform strategic and project management decisions, communicate programmatic projects to key stakeholders, and understand how programmatic efforts relate to other projects as well as to relevant agricultural and socio-economic information.

The training focused on:
•    The data management component which allows users to upload their research outputs (e.g., data, tools, documents) to a secure online catalogue in any format;
•    The data entry application allows users with the appropriate credentials to add project-related data (e.g., indicators as well as customs indicators) through an intuitive, step-by-step web interface;
•    The mapping application allows users to contextualize where Africa RISING research activities are taking place and provide them the opportunity to view and overlay various socio-economic, biophysical, and agriculture-related data.

  1. I AM A GRADUATE IN GEOMATICS ENGINEERING THIS YEAR, JULY 2014. AND HAVE DONE MY RESEARCH ON GROUNDWATER AREAS ASSESSMENT ON A CERTAIN DISTRICT WHICH IS FOUND IN PASTORAL AREA/DISTRICT. AND THIS HAS GREAT VALUE FOR LIVESTOCK ESPECIAL DROUGHT PRONE AREAS. WHERE IS MY AREAS OF CONTRIBUTION IN THIS REGARD?? I KNOW AND WORKED LONGER TIMES IN PASTORAL AREAS THAT IS WHY I INTENTIONAL DID MY RESEARCH WORK THERE.
