This training aims to map and fill the gaps in the government of Sudan institutional and technical capacities, required to create a comprehensive database on displacement patterns and informal settlements in Khartoum, and support political governance in form of decision making processes for displacement durable, sustainable and resilient solutions.
IDEAMAP Sudan worked collaboratively with local governments and civil society organisations, providing training on the use of digital maps produced from satellite imagery to map urban deprived areas /informal settlements, and link the geospatial data collected with community-based data and data from capacity and vulnerability assessments, creating an understanding of displacement challenges and opportunities associated with urban development and socio-economic reconstruction reforms in Sudan.
