Alidade is an online interactive tool that helps organisations plan how to choose or develop civic tech tools using an evidence-based approach. It is based on research conducted in South Africa and Kenya amongst around forty organisations. Alidade guides the user through a set of questions that can help them decide what kind of technology tool would fit with their project. Each step includes tips, real-life examples, and useful resources to help users answer the questions. Alidade then puts together a structured PDF document that can be used to engage colleagues, to explain the requirements to technical providers or to show partners.
