Research and Evaluation PROJECTS
The Microdata Management Toolkit developed by the World Bank Data Group for the International Household Survey Network aimed to promote the adoption of international standards and best practices for microdata documentation, dissemination and preservation. To this effect, Kimetrica conducted hands-on microdata management training for the National Bureaus of Statistics in 15 African countries. In Sri Lanka, Kimetrica trained national staff in improved methods for data capture, documentation, data storage and dissemination of microdata and metadata related to national surveys, such as household and expenditure surveys, population census and health surveys. The training included an introduction to the Organisation for Economic Co-ordination and Development's (OECD) Microdata Management Toolkit, an easy-to-use system for survey data management.

Information Management PROJECTS
The Great Lakes Cassava Initiative (GLCI) was implemented to strengthen the capacity of local partners in preparing for and responding to the Cassava Mosaic Disease and emerging Cassava Brown Streak Disease pandemics that threatened food security and incomes of cassava-dependent farm families in six Great Lake countries: Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda. The project linked with existing breeding programs, farmer evaluations of new varieties, and integrated crop management options to train 3,000 farmer groups in improved farming techniques to increase crop yields. In support of the project’s monitoring and evaluation (M&E) system, Kimetrica's survey team conducted surveys of over 9,000 households in six countries to establish a monitoring, evaluation and reporting system for the GLCI. To facilitate M&E across multiple countries, Kimetrica's software team created a web-based system, allowing for the fast collection of time-sensitive data at the farmer level. Combined with data collection tools to help track the spread and mitigation of Cassava Mosaic Disease across the project area, the M&E system provided Catholic Relief Services and its partners with a near real-time M&E system for project management and impact measurement.
