As a result of the pilot study, partners agreed to apply Approach A for the remaining data collection efforts across the state, which will be completed by the end of September. While this is no longer a directive for learning settlement names, contributors will also help identify or validate health facilities they may encounter in these settlements.
“Following the pilot study, we have continued our data collection efforts across Bauchi State. With Premise, we asked contributors to follow Approach A, maintaining the three submissions requirement to monitor data quality. Once this work is complete, we will expand into other States to obtain comprehensive settlement data for the whole country,” comments Emilie Schnarr, GRID3 Nigeria project lead.
While GRID3 Nigeria aims to name all settlements across the country, the team will regularly monitor and adapt to the existing mobility restrictions put in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Current settlement data, alongside all GRID3 Nigeria datasets can be accessed through the GRID3 Nigeria data portal.
