iMMAP has proven its ability to support emergency response efforts across multiple geographic locations throughout Eastern Europe, Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America.
We have a diversified donor base. Our donors include the US Department of State, USAID/OFDA/FFP, CDC, DFID, SDC, WFP, WHO, UNICEF, UNHCR, IOM, European Commission (ECHO), and the World Bank.
Since 2012, iMMAP has been an official Stand-by Partner Program (SBPP) to the United Nations, a sponsored response mechanism designed to provide skilled and experienced human resources during the first phase of a new emergency.
iMMAP maintains a roster of rapidly deployable information management experts to provide surge capacity support in emergency operations.
The location, duration, and tasks of these deployments are defined jointly with our partners. Information management experts possess a wide variety of expertise and skill sets, and have experience in operating in some of the most challenging global crises.
By providing temporary surge capacity support, we help to boost their international response capacity.
iMMAP currently maintains partnerships with nine UN agencies:
A cluster is a group of agencies that gather to work together towards common objectives within a particular sector of emergency response.
The cluster approach, instituted in 2006 as part of the UN Humanitarian Reform process, is an important step on the road to more effective humanitarian coordination. Ultimately the cluster approach aims to improve the predictability, timeliness, and effectiveness of humanitarian response, and pave the way for recovery. It strengthens leadership and accountability in key sectors. It also seeks to enhance partnerships and complementarity among the UN, Red Cross Movement, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs).
Through the provision of information management services and expertise, iMMAP is a member of three global humanitarian clusters (Health, WASH, and Nutrition), and participates in the Food Security Cluster.
