Discover how the government of Bangladesh used geospatial technology to monitor programs and sustain their growth and development.
Since 2000, Bangladesh has been one of the fastest growing economies in the world. To sustain its growth and development, timely implementation of development projects will be critical. To keep track of progress and assure that the intended impact is reaching the right beneficiaries, and on time, governments are looking to geospatial data.
To address knowledge gaps in operations and challenges to collecting data, the Bangladesh government and the World Bank adapted an innovative approach to digitally monitor how projects are being implemented and impacting livelihoods across Bangladesh through the Geo-Enabling initiative for Monitoring and Supervision (GEMS) initiative.
This blog surveys various projects and strategies where the government of Bangladesh implemented GEMS for their monitoring needs.
