Information Management PROJECTS
In support of the Government of Namibia’s implementation of a national policy to protect biodiversity and mitigate climate change impact through the diversification of community livelihoods, Kimetrica was contracted to develop a web-based compliance monitoring system. The system includes a data warehouse, tools for capturing data on mobile devices, and reporting modules for both management and national level monitoring. It is an open source system, allowing for future customization, easy maintenance, reduced operating costs, and easy access to facilitate use. Optimized for low-bandwidth connections, the web-based application supports both mobile and desktop devices. In addition to the data warehouse, it includes a document archive, based on the open source Mayan electronic document management system tools (EDMS) and data capture modules based on KoboCollect -- an application for primary data collection in humanitarian emergencies. Hosted on a cloud server, the system requires virtually no software maintenance, curbing the need for continued software support.

Research and Evaluation PROJECTS
The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) provides support to national governments in survey design, data management and data analysis. Kimetrica was contracted to provide technical assistance to government statistics offices through capacity development to conduct national surveys, manage data, and data analysis and dissemination. Kimetrica's technical trainers provided regional and national level training to over 20 countries in Africa and Asia on comprehensive micro-data evaluation, data processing systems, survey methods, analysis, indicator selection and public dissemination policy. The project increased the ability of national statistics bureaus to manage national surveys, process data and use data for policy and economic development decision-making.
