Participants will understand how a simple data collection tool can be re-purposed for community/citizen led monitoring efforts. We will walk through examples of farmers using mobile phones to monitor agricultural policies in Rwanda, similarly farmers in Zimbabwe monitoring local weather patterns and also Trócaire's experience exploring tech solution for citizen led monitoring of human rights issues. Through these examples, we will highlight lessons learned and discuss security and privacy considerations as well. We not only wish to share our experience but learn from the expertise in the room!
