Since September 2021, iMMAP has been supporting leading governmental agencies responsible for disaster response and recovery in Malawi. These activities are a part of iMMAP’s project funded by USAID under the Humanitarian Coordination Information Management (HCIM).
Through the HCIM, iMMAP has been supporting the Department of Disaster Management Affairs (DoDMA) with IM services and products. Decision-makers are being provided with needs mapping, response reach and gaps analysis to prioritize the mobilization of resources.
In addition to the above, iMMAP has also introduced weekly updates to inform both district and national levels actors with quick visual analysis of the situation on the ground. The disaster response updates feature data relevant to large and small-scale disasters including, droughts, strong winds, floods together with the stress they impose on the affected populations to identify the most urgent needs.
