GRID3 works with countries in sub-Saharan Africa to generate, validate, and use core spatial datasets on population, settlements, subnational boundaries, and crucial infrastructure. We train and support stakeholders who use this information for analytics and decision-making, and work closely with local governments to improve national ownership and sustainability of the data.
We blend official data with data generated by novel approaches; our solutions draw on advanced data science and technology, participatory mapping, satellite imagery, and other innovations. GRID3 combines the expertise of leading technical partners to design pragmatic and responsive geospatial solutions that address the priority needs of each country.
Our work facilitates data-driven interventions that reach communities that need them the most. GRID3 solutions are valuable across multiple development sectors, from education to infrastructure. Our current focus is improving health interventions—particularly immunization coverage and malaria control—in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and Nigeria.
