UNDP and iMMAP Announce Memorandum of Understanding

August 3, 2017, Washington, D.C. – As part of the United Nations’ Stand-by Partnership Program (SBPP), iMMAP and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) announced today a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to establish a stand-by partnership to complement UNDP’s internal staffing capacity to support the deployment of personnel to UNDP HQ and country offices operating in crisis and recovery situations.

The MoU, signed by UNDP’s Acting Director for the Crisis Response Unit, Bruno Lemarquis and iMMAP’s Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder, William Barron outlines the basis for the ongoing collaboration between the two organizations, where iMMAP will provide individual deployments of personnel in accordance with the terms of the MoU.

The Stand-by Partnership Program is a United Nations’ (UN) sponsored response mechanism designed to provide skilled and experienced human resource during the first phase of a new emergency. It covers a wide range of professional categories. iMMAP participates in the SBPP solely within the niche of its expertise, namely the information management (IM) category.

iMMAP has been an official Stand-by Partner (SBP) to the UN since 2012, providing support to numerous UN agencies across the world. IMMAP currently maintains partnerships with eight (8) UN agencies; Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), World Food Programme (WFP), Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), International Organization for Migration (IOM), United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF), World Health Organization (WHO), United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and United Nation Development Programme (UNDP).

About UNDP

UNDP works in nearly 170 countries and territories, helping to achieve the eradication of poverty, and the reduction of inequalities and exclusion.  Following a sudden onset disaster or a complex protracted crisis, UNDP works with affected communities to help them begin early recovery as quickly as possible, while building resilience to future shocks.

In adapting to the New Way of Working, UNDP ensues a faster, more predictable and more effective response. UNDP’s work is built on the principle of strong partnerships with other organizations and makes a clear link between humanitarian and early recovery activities, recovery planning and effective transition to sustainable development, in both disaster and conflict affected settings.
