IM-D3R’s activities are directly linked to disaster risk management and the humanitarian response and build on the achievements of the previous USAID-funded project; Humanitarian Information Management for Natural Hazards and Emergency Response (HIM-NHER). The IM-D3R project includes new activities that address the changing and worsening humanitarian context by building, enhancing, and reactivating critical tools for collecting, processing, and sharing information with and among humanitarian actors for timely action and efficient response planning.
The primary objective of this project is to improve the impact of the humanitarian response in Afghanistan by assisting the humanitarian community to prepare for, respond to, and mitigate the impacts of natural hazards. Additionally, through this project, iMMAP will provide critical IM support, services, products, and capacity strengthening, including data management, mapping, reporting, and business opportunity insights to key partners through:
- IM support to the clusters, sub-clusters, working groups, UN agencies, OCHA, and I/NGOs.
- IM services to NGOs and civil society groups/organizations through analysis, advisory and consultations, product design, development, delivery, and maintenance.
- Web-based tools and dashboards for timely compilation of information from multiple sources along with the consolidation, storage, and redistribution of data relevant to crises and natural hazards, e.g., ReportHub and Afghanistan Spatial Data Center.
- IM training and internships to develop national IM capacities.
By building on iMMAP’s success in improving IM capacity in Afghanistan, iMMAP, through this project, will continue supporting humanitarian actors throughout the country by providing access to critical, relevant, and timely information through IM products, capacity strengthening activities, mapping/cartography, and geospatial analysis.
