As part of its disaster risk reduction (DRR) capacity strengthening program in Afghanistan, iMMAP has completed five days of training, from September 13 – 17, on geographic information systems (GIS) for 16 members of staff from the Afghanistan National Disaster Management Authority (دفتر وزیر دولت در امور رسیدگی به حوادث, ANDMA).

The primary purpose of the training was to enhance the knowledge and skills of the IM/GIS Assistants, seconded from iMMAP to ANDMA, in ArcMap, QGIS, and Google Earth Pro, so that they can map, identify, and analyze areas at risk of natural hazards. This will support ANDMA to plan, prepare, and respond to the numerous natural hazards that occur in the country every year and result in the loss of lives, livelihoods, and property.

The training was a success and ANDMA’s senior management expressed their great satisfaction in iMMAP’s services. iMMAP thanks ANDMA for their confidence in iMMAP to provide this specialized technical support and USAID Afghanistan for funding iMMAP to do so.

Over 860,000 Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) live in areas across Iraq that suffer regular attacks by ISIS and other militia groups. According to data collected by iMMAP, 96 deaths and 102 injuries occurred during August 2020 as a result of 365 explosive hazard incidents (EHIs) across these regions.

iMMAP Iraq’s Risk Mitigation Information Management Center (RMIMC), funded by the Iraq Humanitarian Fund, has developed a GIS web application that provides humanitarian actors operating in the ISIS-affected regions with access to EHI information. The application provides a monthly summary of EHIs and the geolocation of incidents, highlights risk levels on primary and secondary roads near IDPs locations to facilitate safe access for humanitarian actors.

The web application is freely accessible at https://bit.ly/3ihbcFj
