The annual ICT4D Conferences have proven to be an invaluable opportunity for NGOs, private sector organizations, universities, governmental agencies and foundations to share their experience in using ICT to increase the impact of development programs and to learn from each other.  In 2016, 715 individuals from 76 countries and 301 private sector and public sector and civil society explored the ways to harness the full power of digital solutions to achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.  Our thanks to Accenture, Catholic Relief Services, Esri, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, iMerit Technology Services, Inmarsat, IS Solutions, Making All Voices Count, Mercy Corps, Microsoft, NetHope, Oxfam, Pandexio, Qualcom Wireless Reach, RTI International, SimbaNet and World Vision for making that possible.

Limited Capacity seats available

SMART (Spatial Monitoring And Reporting Tool) is designed to help monitoring Antipoaching patrols. Its combination of software, emphasis on capacity building and best practices will provide local protected area and wildlife authorities and community groups the ability to empower staff, boost motivation, increase efficiency and promote credible and transparent monitoring of the effectiveness of anti-poaching efforts.

SMART accomplishes this by being inexpensive, more adaptive and intuitive to use, and with more advanced analysis and reporting functions that other monitoring technologies now in use. SMART incorporates intelligence gathering as well as patrol data, and it uses innovative ways to better aid conservation managers in strategic planning of enforcement activities. Most importantly, SMART is easy to use. 

If you are a wildlife protection organization, learn how you or your organization can get involved and how you can make SMART work for you, it has for us and we are happy to share experiences, challenges and lessons learned.

This session is tailored to introduce you to SMART, give you a historic background of it's development, guide you to set up the database, and practice with you on how to collect data for SMART. By the end of this session I show you a few real-life examples of SMART-in-action.

It's time to get SMART about conservation.
