How to successfully conduct surveys using mobile phones in Africa

May 15 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm BST


As part of HLA’s practical webinar series, Geopoll will run a free webinar on how to successfully conduct surveys using mobile phones in Africa.

Global mobile phone usage has never been higher and offers humanitarian organisations exciting opportunities as a fast and cost-efficient monitoring, evaluation and learning tool to gather direct, real-time feedback from communities.  GeoPoll has used mobile phones to generate data to conduct market assessments, monitor last mile delivery and usage of goods, manage supply chains, track health seeking behaviour and much more

This webinar will share GeoPolls expertise, gathered conducting 10 million surveys per year since 2015, on how to successfully conduct community level surveys using mobile phones in Africa.

The webinar will explore why and how mobile phones are an effective tool for monitoring, evaluation and learning; share a case study to practically illustrate the power of mobile phones for gathering community level data and share lessons learned on how GeoPoll reaches specific demographic groups and how GeoPoll increases response rates by overcoming barriers to entry.

The speaker will be Jocelyn Williams, Business Development Lead – International Development, Geopoll, supported by a colleague on the Q&A section, Scott Lansell – Director – International Development.
