Top upcoming trainings on GIS and Statistical Analysis for WASH Programmes

Training Course on GIS and Statistical Analysis for WASH Programmes


Integration of GIS technologies in WASH programs boosts the implementation of target-based interventions because it aids in the construction of a model of the complex environment in a straightforward way that you can understand.

The continuation of developments in free open source GIS software for web and desktop applications has opened doors for many possibilities in the practice of capturing and processing of geographical information, as well as publishing maps on the internet.

With this program, Public health practitioners, Program Manager, Environmentalist, Monitoring and Evaluation Experts, Civil Engineers, risk assessors, quantitative health geographers, epidemiologists, exposure scientists, and students can gain front-line skills on project planning and design, advocacy and accountability, and monitoring and evaluation.
