Next week (12th July) we will be hosting a Q&A discussion with experts on Blue Ventures Data Feedback Toolkit. The toolkit was curated by Blue Ventures, Abalobi and Mwambo colleagues back in April 2021 as a practitioners guide to use data in community based marine management. Over the last few weeks, I have been reaching out to people who have either used the toolkit or contributed to designing it, and will be posting their opinions and perspective on the toolkit next week for discussion. The experts will be on standby for questions throughout next week, so please refresh your memory of Blue Ventures Data Feedback Toolkit attached, and be ready to ask lots of insightful questions!
This will be a great opportunity to network and explore the importance of data within ICT4Fisheries - looking forward to it!
Thanks for sharing Katie!
I see ODK being used through Kobo Toolbox and from my experience it makes it a lot faster for data to be shared and discussed. Ultimately enabling decisions. Would be interested to hear what others have to say.
We at ABALOBI have used ODK for many years until we switched to building our own apps. However we are big fans of ODK and especially Kobotoolbox as they allow for rapid prototyping and deployment. We have so many stories when were in the field about to deploy a new type of survey, discussed this in a fisher group, and then that evening updated the form for the next day, taking into account the fishers' input. The tool lends itself really well for co-design.
