Citizen-generated data for campaigning

From July to December 2016, we worked with 18 organisations in Argentina, Kenya, Tanzania and Nepal to create and pilot training on using citizen-generated data for campaigning towards implementing and monitoring the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Different approaches to the training were used, including; developing a CGD campaign training manual (translated and adapted for the country), workshops, an intense two-day camp with experts, providing financial assistance for CGD campaigns, and structured support with an online DataShift consultant. All the approaches had their strengths and their weakness, however, success in every case was mostly attributed to the relationship between the civil society organisations (CSOs), DataShift and the training materials. Learn more about the approaches used to implement our second phase of direct support.
