Looking back at the past year, we’ll review some of KoboToolbox’s major milestones, showcase some of the incredible work being done by our users, and preview a few of the exciting new projects we’re working on.
Building resilience in coastal communities: How Blue Ventures is using KoboToolbox to drive marine conservation and improve digital equality
Small-scale fishing is one of the world’s most important sources of food, but it remains one of the least digitized sectors, making it challenging to effectively manage fisheries and protect the biodiversity of marine life. Blue Ventures, a marine conservation organization, is using KoboToolbox to support remote and rural coastal communities to monitor fisheries themselves with access to real-time data and insights. Blue Ventures’ work in Madagascar, Indonesia, Timor-Leste, and Comoros shows how KoboToolbox can be used to drive community-led action for change and protect the coastal environment for future generations.
How WeWorld-GVC is using KoboToolbox to enhance fleet management and humanitarian logistics in Burundi
WeWorld-GVC, an organization dedicated to supporting development cooperation and humanitarian aid, used KoboToolbox to successfully digitize their fleet management data collection in Burundi. With their improved fleet management system, they have greater access to the data and insights needed for more efficient logistics and more effective crisis response.
