Measuring Impact, Monitoring Effectiveness
APW takes a science-driven and adaptive approach to conservation and community development to ensure the maximum positive impact of our work. Access to timely, accurate, and detailed information enhances the efforts of our team and partners and enables us to continually evolve our programs. Our GIS department is fully integrated into all of our conservation initiatives, ensuring that each program is contributing to our holistic approach towards landscape connectivity.
Mobile Technologies Improve Performance
Our field teams across northern Tanzania utilize mobile technologies like Cybertracker, the Spatial Monitoring and Reporting Tool (SMART), Survey123, and Collector for ArcGIS to collect and share real-time data to a cloud-based server. Our Monitoring, Evaluation, Learning, and Adaptation team then uses the ArcGIS platform to clean, analyze, and share the data, allowing us to respond to conflict, measure trends over time, and adapt our programs to changing conditions on the ground.
