Unveiling of mapping tool for Anglican aid

12 April 2011

The mapping tool, linked to the website which will go live later this year, will make it possible for every diocese throughout the Communion to showcase its development work.

Each diocese can have a photogallery on the Alliance website. And details of their development, relief and advocacy work will be included in a database. This will enable people to share best practice. It will also demonstrate the huge amount of development work undertaken by Anglicans around the world, and provide powerful evidence for use in advocacy.

The website and mapping tool have been developed in a partnership between a UK and Polish company. It’s designed to be easily accessible by people with limited access to the internet and only basic computer technology.

Delegates were able to trial the mapping tool, and put in recommendations for the final design of mapping tool and website.
