The mapping is the first field operation as part of the project. Given the fact that the BUCREP is also preparing the 4th General Population and Housing Census (RGPH4), the GCAL mapping was coupled with that of BUCREP with a view to carrying out only one operation and making budget savings. To this mapping was added the community survey.

The operation began on October1, 2016 and it is currently at a completion rate of 74 per cent in 11 months. It is scheduled to be completed by the end of October.

XX cartographers are deployed for the collection to date.
