  • Outcome Harvesting Community of Practitioners
    This online Community of Practice is a platform for Outcome Harvesting practitioners in NGOs and civil society organisations from predominantly the Netherlands. Here we exchange experiences in implementing outcome harvesting for monitoring & evaluation and learning. We share resources and information, such as guidances to start up outcome harvesting within our organisations, and train colleagues, partners and CSOs to formulate outcomes. We exchange emails asking eachother questions on how others deal with the different aspects of putting the methodology into practice. The platform supports improvement of our practices - under the motto "Good Practices to Assure the Quality" - and advocate Outcome Harvesting as a trustworthy method for the M&E of Strategic Partnership grants (the financial framework 'Dialogue & Dissent' of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs) and other financial schemes of donors. The Dgroup tools for this community enables us to easily share with the group members through regular email messages. Responding to eachother's emails is through a simple reply or sending a new email with a new subject, right from your own email box. All previous emails, uploaded documents and much more is accesible through and archived on our online platform: [ link to OH Online Platform ( https://dgroups.io/g/OH-pract-NL ) ]. We hope that this stimulates the participants to use and share as frequent as deemed useful. We aim it to be accessible for all, and especially for those of us that are relatively new to Outcome Harvesting. We know from own experience as PMEL coordinators that when starting up and developing OH further within our respective organisations, we are confronted with so many (small) questions and (large) dilemmas. Please feel welcome to share yours and contribute! ------ NB: This community was initiated early 2017 by PMEL Coordinators of 15 Strategic Partnership grantees from the Netherlands working at: Amref, BothEnds, Cordaid, FPU, GPPAC, Hivos, IUCN, Milieudefensie, Oxfam Novib, PAX, SNV, Tropenbos International, Rutgers, and Wetlands International. We have in common that we are in different phases to implement outcome harvesting for our PME approaches. Paul Kosterink of GPPAC has further facilitated the community including the organisation of 'live' workshops in 2017 and 2018 under the motto "Good Practices to Assure the Quality".

  • Artemisia Scientific Steering Group
    *The Artemisia Scientific Steering Group seek to promote access to Artemisia as a mean against malaria by:* * Supporting the scientific research, both agronomic and medical, necessary to convince WHO to lift its ban on the use and marketing of the plant so as to encourage all official bodies, including specialized United Nations bodies involved in agriculture, health, education and human rights, to contribute to accelerating the controlled dissemination of these Artemisia; * The organization of symposiums in Africa on Artemisia effective against malaria and other tropical infectious disease. These conferences: o Treat the benefits of plants as repellents against malaria vectors and other insect-borne diseases, as prophylactics and cures against tropical infectious diseases; o Bring together African national official authorities and WHO and other relevant United Nations bodies, African and international researchers, plant practitioners; The Steering Group is composed of African and international biologists, pharmacists, doctors, chemists, economists, agronomists and practitioners of Artemisia concerned to contribute to the development of these plants in Africa. The Steering Group acts at the African national and regional levels as well as at the international level. *Researchers on the* *Steering Group will regularly share their research results and field experiences, including cultural practices and dosages applied.* It is directed by Researcher Rosine Désirée Chougouo Kengne of the University of Mountains of Cameroon. *Context of the creation of this Group:* Participants at the IDAY-International General Assembly in Conakry in March 2019 propose the creation of a Pan-African Scientific Steering Group to accelerate the dissemination of Artemisia annua and afra in Africa in accordance with WHO standards. Indeed, considering that: * Malaria still kills more than 400,000 people a year worldwide, including 366,000 African children, or 1,000 children a day; * The World Health Organization (WHO) reports on malaria in 2017 and 2018 show that: o since 2016, progress against malaria has been stagnant o In Africa, the incidence rate is 219 per 1,000 people (world average: 59/1000) o The most affected countries are experiencing an increase in incidence (in Africa Nigeria, DRC, Mozambique, Uganda and India) o Resistance to pesticides used on mosquito nets and to one or more of the two components of Artemisinine-based Combination Therapy (ACT) has emerged around the world o ACTs are frequently used against diseases other than malaria, thus unnecessarily accelerating the emergence of resistance * 50% of ACTs distributed in trade in Africa are counterfeit; * The shelf-life of ACTs under tropical climatic conditions is limited; * The official means used (ACT, impregnated mosquito nets, indoor pesticides, early diagnosis, treatment for pregnant women) are expensive, with the consequence that they are not accessible to all, also taking into account the limitations of the amounts of international funding available; * There are serious doubts about the sustainability of the official approach, as Richard Horton already mentioned in a 2011 article and as confirmed by the resurgence of malaria in countries such as India and Mozambique where malaria had been virtually eradicated; * Nearly 70% of the African population uses community medicine; * The enormous potential of Artemisia annua and afra as established by the history of the plant in China, the countless field observations in Africa and elsewhere, the extensive research both in vitro and in vivo on the plant, and in particular those demonstrating a lower sensitivity of plants to the creation of resistance; * The diagnosis by many African authorities that they would not succeed in achieving the Sustainable Development Goal (SDO) affected by malaria (SDOs 3.1, 3.2 and 3.3) without the intervention of new means of control; * Malaria has real impacts on the social and economic development of affected countries.

    This is a space for people to share ideas and discuss ways to support investment in sustainable livestock sectors in developing countries - mainly through evidence generation, communication, policy advocacy and engagement. Evidence ( https://whylivestockmatter.org ( https://whylivestockmatter.org/ ) ) indicates that l *ivestock are critical for sustainable development yet often overlooked.* The world’s cows, sheep, goats, pigs, poultry and other farm animals are the mainstay of livelihoods across the developing world. And the energy and nutrient-dense milk, meat and eggs these animals produce provide hundreds of millions of families in the world’s poorer countries with basic livelihoods, incomes, food and nutrition. This space is supported by the global sustainable livestock advocacy for development project (led by ILRI ( https://www.ilri.org/ ) ) as part of efforts to increase investment in sustainable livestock. Our aim is to catalyze a community of sustainable livestock sector champions, connecting efforts and supporting concerted efforts globally.

  • Open Forum on Participatory Geographic Information Systems and Technologies
    Welcome to PPgis.net, the *Open Forum on Participatory Geographic Information Systems and Technologies*. In building a community of practice (CoP) around the concepts of Public Participation GIS (PPGIS)/Participatory GIS (PGIS) this DGroup aims at stimulating exchange of information on progress made in bringing the power of geospatial information management systems at community level. A prime objective is to provide disadvantaged groups in society with added knowledge-based resources for interacting with higher-level institutions, negotiating territorial issues, participating in land/resource use planning, management and decision-making, and influencing policy-making. This CoP supports the vision of participatory geospatial information management and communication linking different knowledge systems and improving multi-party communication on spatially defined issues. Members of this DGroup are able to share information and lessons learned and post questions, resource documents and announcements which are relevant to the practice. On this forum members can share their ideas, post questions and answers, showcase their practices or discuss topics related to the practices of participatory mapping and communication. Our editorial policy is to publish these unless these are meant to create an intentional conflict based on gender, religion or nationality. We also don't publish direct personal attack or pointed criticism (to an individual or organisation) unless this is supported by substantive evidence and/or justification as to why the author brings forward this. We do not publish “thank you” messages unless these do not contribute to further elaboration of the topic at stake. The forum is open to registered members and moderated by development practitioners and researchers with worldwide experience in a number of relevant disciplines. Disclaimer: All the messages posted here are the views of the authors and not of PPgis.Net. PPgis.net in no way is responsible for the comments or views expressed by the members of this group.

  • Forum électronique sur les technologies et les Systèmes d’information géographique participatifs (SIGP)
    Bienvenu à la section francophone du site internet PPgis.net, le forum électronique sur les technologies et les Systèmes d’information géographique participatifs (SIGP). En construisant une communauté d’intervenant qui œuvrent à l’entour du concept des SIGP, ce groupe de discussion s’est donné comme objectif de favoriser les échanges de connaissances à propos des progrès réalisés relativement aux activités des intervenants, d’activiste et de chercheurs francophones. L’objectif principal de ce groupe est de permettre aux communautés marginalisées d’un point de vue socioéconomique d’accéder aux connaissances nécessaires afin d’interagir auprès des institutions de haut niveau, de discuter des problématiques d’un territoire, développer des pratiques participatives liées à l’aménagement et la planification territoriale, de prendre part aux processus de prise de décisions et d’influencer l’élaboration des politiques. Ce groupe de discussion adhère à la vision qui considère que la gestion participative de l’information géographique favorise l’échange entre les systèmes de connaissance et qui, par le fait même, améliore la communication entre les acteurs impliquer dans la résolution de problématique spatiale/territoriale. Il est possible de s’inscrire à ce groupe de discussion modère par des praticiens et des chercheurs ouvrant dans le domaine du développement à travers le monde et possédant une expérience pertinente dans plusieurs disciplines.

  • Foro sobre Sistemas y Tecnologías de la Información Geográfica Participativas
    Bienvenidos a PPgis.net, la sección en español del Foro sobre Tecnologías y Sistemas de Información Geográfica Participativa. La creación de un espacio en español, a través de un DGroup formado por la comunidad de usuarios en Cartografía Participativa y Sistemas de Información Geográficos Participativos (SIG-P), pretende estimular el intercambio de información ya existente y hacer llegar el poder de los sistemas de gestión de información geoespacial a nivel local y comunitario. El principal objetivo es promover la apropiación por parte de los grupos más desfavorecidos de la sociedad de los conocimientos necesarios para relacionarse con las instancias gubernamentales superiores, negociar cuestiones relativas al territorio, participar en la planificación del uso de la tierra y los recursos, participar en los procesos de gestión y toma de decisiones e influir en las políticas. Este DGroup respalda la visión de la gestión participativa de la información geoespacial combinando diferentes sistemas de conocimientos y mejorando la comunicación entre todos los implicados en cuestiones relativas a la temática. Los miembros del DGroup pueden formular preguntas, compartir información, lecciones aprendidas, documentos y anuncios relevantes. El foro está abierto a los miembros registrados y esta moderado por especialistas en desarrollo y investigadores con experiencia al nivel mundial en varias disciplinas relevantes.

  • Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) for Agriculture
    The use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or drones for management of crops, livestock, fisheries, forests and other natural resource-based activities represents a new technological frontier and opens up a range of exciting opportunities. UAVs offer also opportunities for grassroots’ involvement in monitoring use of and access to the resources their livelihoods depend on. Members of this community share their experiences in developing UAV technologies and related software applications and more importantly in making use of small UAVs to improve the management of crops, fishing grounds and other resource-based activities. Relevant events, capacity building opportunities and other resources are signalled as soon as these are known by members of the community. Being the use of UAVs for agricultural purposes a recent phenomenon, national aviation authorities are facing new challenges linked to the use of UAVs within their skies. Hence this Community focuses also on existing and forthcoming policies, laws and regulations governing the use of UAVs.

  • DG-Moderators
    This is the place for group Owners and Moderators to share, discuss, learn and seek help to manage their groups. A few useful things to know about this group: * *Members* of this group are owners and moderators from Dgroups Partners that are using the groups.io platform; * *Messages* are set to non-moderated - if you reply to a message from this group, you will reach all group members * *Hashtags* are used to categorize and classify topics and conversations. These are the hashtags that you can currently use: * *#howto* - for guides and suggestions, questions on how to use the platform from a technical point of view * *#members* - for questions and guidance on how to manage your group members * *#moderation* - to discuss non-tech issues related to facilitating and animating a group * *#updates* - this is used only by the group moderator(s) to post when new features are released or changed on the groups.io platform. As we go along, we'll see which other hashtags would be useful to add - and which ones to remove.
