How to “Localise” the Millennium Developing Goals Part 2: How to use different software and technologies as tools to support city planning
The training session provides participants with practical, step-by-step guidance on how to build and implement an urban monitoring system as an integral part of their own development strategies, programmes and services. The session will present techniques, measurement tools, analytical methods and reporting procedures to guide partners through the design and implementation process. The training will start with basics on how to select relevant indicators. It will then show how to collect and organise data and maintain data bases. The session will also demonstrate the potential uses of urban data for decision-making based on the application of different software.
