OUR PROGRAM

Funded by USAID, iMMAP has been actively operating in Afghanistan since 2010, providing solutions to the information management (IM) needs of the humanitarian community to support informed decision making processes.

iMMAP delivers IM products and services to key partners in humanitarian response and disaster risk reduction, including but not limited to humanitarian clusters, UN agencies, USAID implementing partners, and NGOs.

We work towards ensuring that data consistency and standardization are integrated into all systems for more efficient and cost-effective emergency response by humanitarian actors.

CURRENT PROJECT

Humanitarian Information Management for Natural Hazard and Emergency Response in Afghanistan (HIM-NHER) 
Through the HIM-NHER project, iMMAP, with the support of USAID, is assisting the humanitarian community in Afghanistan by providing accurate, relevant, and timely information to facilitate humanitarian coordination and response planning.

This includes lending our expertise in institutional capacity development, knowledge management, institutional coordination, implementation mechanisms, and other key activities for humanitarian IM and coordination, to address the gap in IM and analysis.

iMMAP produces a range of information products such as maps, dashboards, spatial platforms, and reporting systems, to assist our partners in mapping their presence and activities, as well as 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 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 disaster risk reduction (DRR).

The Afghanistan Natural Hazard Data Center (ANHDC), formerly the Afghanistan Spatial Data Center (ASDC) - is a web-based geospatial platform developed by iMMAP that provides critical information to the Afghanistan National Disaster Management Authority (ANDMA) for DRR, operations planning, emergency response, and M&E. In October 2020 The ANHDC was handed over to ANDMA.

The HIM-NHER 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 the humanitarian context.
