SMART is a practical tool that can be used by humanitarian field workers for technical support and training. It establishes a comprehensive capacity building and support system that will be accessible to all partners. This will expand the use of the standardized method among national and international agencies, improve data quality and enable decision making based on accurate data.
Occasionally, different partners collaborate to improve and further implement the SMART methodology in developing countries.
These partners can be from any of the following:
- Universities, research institutes
- UN/International Organizations
- PVOs (Private Voluntary Organizations) /NGOs
- Local governments; Ministries of Health
- Individual experts
