Case study on the use of geodata and online tools for WASH in refugee camps


The goal of this project is to provide insight in the possibilities and potential of online data sources and tools for smart measuring, data collection, information sharing and visualisation.

To demonstrate this we will carry out a pilot project in Mtendeli refugee camp in Tanzania which currently hosts over 50,000 refugees from Burundi. In Mtendeli we will demonstrate the potential uses of geodata and online tools for WASH (e.g. boreholes, piped networks and latrines) in refugee camps.

These tools and methods can be of great help in planning, decision making, (field) operations and management for UNHCR, UNICEF and partners.
