Are you using Kobo in a community (C-MRV) situation?

Hi all

We are looking to find all the organisations that are currently running, or have plans to run in the future, a Community Monitoring Reporting and Verification (C-MRV) project, using any technology, as we have funding as part of our phase two C-MRV project in Guyana to create a network/group to help share knowledge and experiences.

The group will mainly be focussed on forest communities, but anyone who is using handhelds in a community context will also be welcome as we share common challenges.

A questionnaire will put together shortly to help gain more structured information about who is out there, where the projects are based, how many people are involved and what type of data is being collected etc. But I was just wanting to start the process by asking for a quick hands up from people who fit this profile.

Membership or engagement in a group is not mandatory so if you are just happy to say who you are and that you are operating in this space then that’s great. I am just trying to get an initial feel for the numbers of projects there are in MRV world.

To respond, please simply reply to this post with your project name, its location and the number of community people involved - or feel free to email me off list.

Many thanks
