Community mapping in Tanzania: a local solution towards SDG monitoring

Crowd2Map is a volunteer project that for five years has been mapping rural Tanzania into OpenStreetMap in order to support community development and better protect girls from FGM (female genital mutilation). Our Digital Champion network is now mapping access to water and health facilities at a village level. This workshop will outline the lessons learnt so far, share how they developed their methodology, and conclude with a practical mapping session.
