Geo-Enabling Initiative for Monitoring and Supervision (GEMS)

World Bank Group

The Geo-Enabling initiative for Monitoring and Supervision (GEMS) was launched by the World Bank’s FCV unit to systematically provide real-time insights into FCV settings. This is achieved by building capacity among clients and partners on the ground, to leverage field-appropriate technology for digital data collection and analysis. Using these tools and methods allows operations to enhance the transparency and accuracy of monitoring and evaluation and increase the accountability of third-party monitoring. At the same time, GEMS provides platforms for remote supervision, real-time risk monitoring, and portfolio mapping for coordination across projects and partners.
