Simplify Environmental
Data & Information

The DATACAB Environmental data analytic portal enables users to simplify environmental incident data and contents, presenting them in simplified infographic charts that can be easily used by strategic stakeholders for environmental analysis, strategic advocacy and targeted Intervention.

Using a simplified data analysis platform, the DATACAB portal will totally reinvigorate grassroot participation in environmental protection and climate change adaptation. The data platform is optimised for mobile devices and provides a simplified user interface that supports data inputs compilations and analysis. Resulting analysed information will be grouped and presented in simplified infographic contents, charts and geospatial visual maps using coordinate technology for accurate referencing of identified locations.

Oil Spill Data on the portal are culled from the National Oil Spill Detection and Response Agency (NOSDRA) website, Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and verified reports from trained community environmental monitors and reporters. MAJI has also installed Raspberry Pi Single board air quality sensors to monitor Particulate Matter pollution (P.M 1.0, 2.5, 10) levels across key areas in Rivers State, Nigeria.

About the
Data Casting Biodiversity

The DATACAB project uses Data analytics simplification tools to reinforce Civil Society Organisations capacity to contribute to environmentally protection and locally led climate adaptation in rural communities across the Niger Delta and in Nigeria.

The project is focused on building the capacity of civil society organizations, community-based groups, environmental monitors, media reporters, to use and incorporate data analysis for environmental monitoring, incident documentation, reporting, awareness and advocacy. The project is also training rural women to make energy efficient clay based clean cookstoves to facilitate low cost food production and reduced community dependence on wood. The project is setting up environmental clubs, educating young people in secondary schools on environmental protection, biodiversity conservation and climate change adaptation.

About the Media Awareness and Justice Initiative (MAJI)

MAJI is an innovative, youth led non-governmental organization that builds the capacity of young people and women from marginalised communities to use innovative ICT tools, alternative media platforms and collaborative strategies to protect their environment, support gender equality, while promoting human rights. Our mission is to work with groups and social movements working together for social, economic, cultural and environmental justice by helping them use media and communication technologies to inform, organise, mobilise and further their struggles to create a better world. We use participatory strategies to create awareness, sensitise people and increase community voice. In collaboration with our target groups, we create platforms for sustained participatory interaction among relevant stakeholders.
