Geo-enabled Microplanning Handbook_Executive_Summary.pdf

The COVAX GIS Working Group along with 124 expert authors, have developed this Geo-enabled Microplanning Handbook to serve as a practical guide to developing and implementing geo-enabled microplans.


Since August 2021, co-authors and working group Core Partners have been contributing their knowledge and expertise to the planning, writing, and editing of this first version of this Handbook.
