Datashift is providing direct support to organisations so they can upgrade, supercharge or complete their projects by strengthening their capacities in producing citizen-generated data. Through our direct support, we are also building a global community of peers and champions of citizen-generated data.
Direct Support Phase II
DataShift has created and piloted training on using citizen-generated data for campaigning (CGD) towards implementing and monitoring the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Different approaches were used, including; developing a CGD campaign training manual, workshops, an intense two-day camp with experts, providing financial assistance for CGD campaigns, and support with an online DataShift consultant. All the approaches had their strengths and weaknesses, however, success in every case was mostly attributed to the relationship between the civil society organisations (CSOs), DataShift and the training materials.
