Through the IM-D3R project, iMMAP, with the support of USAID, is assisting the humanitarian community in Afghanistan by providing accurate, relevant, and timely information
to inform disaster risk reduction
(DRR) efforts and improve the impact of the humanitarian response
This includes lending our expertise in capacity development, knowledge management, implementation mechanisms, and other key activities for humanitarian information management (IM) and coordination, to address the gap in IM and analysis.
iMMAP produces a range of static and interactive IM products such as maps, dashboards, spatial platforms, and reporting systems. These products assist our partners in mapping their presence and activities, also managing and visualizing essential information for their programs.
We offer humanitarian coordination and reporting support through ReportHub
, an online reporting platform developed by iMMAP that addresses the gap in reporting operational data across organizations by streamlining the information flow between clusters, partners, and the Humanitarian Country Team (HCT) in support of the Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP).
ReportHub has been identified as a major verification tool for the humanitarian community in Afghanistan and is currently the main reporting tool used by the humanitarian clusters and working groups active in the country, as endorsed by the HCT.
To facilitate the use of ReportHub, iMMAP’s capacity strengthening team provides recurrent training and workshops
at the cluster, sub-cluster, and working group levels to cope with UN and NGO staff turnover.
We also closely liaise with OCHA to ensure that the HRP and cluster-specific reporting requirements are met and provide IM support to the humanitarian clusters for specialized tasks from our in-country program team. iMMAP is recognized as a leading organization in the innovation of IM and geospatial services and continues to advocate for information sharing in DRR.
The Afghanistan Spatial Data Center (ASDC)
is an advanced web-based geospatial platform developed by iMMAP that provides critical information for DRR, operations planning, emergency response, and M&E. Under this project, the ASDC will be re-activated and updated, to provide the best currently available DRR data and other baseline information
to the humanitarian community in Afghanistan.
Finally, as an essential component of this project, iMMAP will coordinate rounds of remote primary data collection to provide up-to-date information and to fill data and information gaps.
This will assist decision-makers in understanding the status of humanitarian services delivery and how effectively services are reaching affected populations.
The IM-D3R project allows iMMAP to demonstrate its commitment to empowering humanitarian stakeholders and national capacities in Afghanistan
to reach a professional understanding of the principles and best practices of IM in a DRR and humanitarian context.
