A day’s input and reflection of FAKT consultants in April 2019 served to understand the chances of digitalisation for consultancies and for development interventions. Nora Hauptman of betterplace.lab gave a vivid overview of trends with lots of practical examples. Working groups discussed digitalisation in agriculture in Zimbabwe and Eritrea. Community-based cartography with GPS and a vulnerability assessment framework were presented in groups. A discussion on strategies of GIZ and BMZ in the field finalised the day.
