It is expected that the information collected during monitoring activities will be made available in (near) real time by means of technology and that it contains additional media as requested (GPS coordinates, audio, pictures video, samples of relevant printed materials, links to digital assets, etc). This information should be quickly and easily retrievable by UNICEF staff for analysis and action, and therefore technology supported solutions will be used for faster collection, sharing and packaging of data.
