BluoVerda Deutschland e.V., an association established by alumni from the MSc and PhD program at our Chair of Tropical Forestry and Weltweit e.V., are organizing the online workshop “Project Monitoring and Reporting: Introduction to Geographic Methods using Open-Source Software”.
This is an introductory course that teaches how to use the open-source software OpenForis and QGIS to generate spatial information for monitoring and reporting project activities and outputs. Using a learning-by-doing approach, it addresses the theoretical and practical knowledge required for spatial data collection and visualization.
The workshop targets DAAD students and graduates of development programs in Germany primarily. Students, young researchers, and professionals with experience in international development projects who would like to further qualify and professionalize their skills in project monitoring and evaluation using geographic information systems are also welcomed to apply.
It will take place from 24. June – 10. July 2020 and is divided into six online sessions and additional online group and self-learning activities. A certificate of participation will be provided upon completion of the workshop. You can find more information about the program and the workshop here:
