On May 16, a high-level delegation from the Geneva International Centre for Humanitarian Demining (GICHD) visited our Erbil offices to discuss the activities of iMMAP on Humanitarian Mine Action (HMA) Information Management (IM) in Iraq, and the challenges that this discipline faces in the country. iMMAP also provided the GICHD members with more in-depth insight into iMMAP's growing presence globally.

iMMAP and GICHD have previously cooperated on various projects, platforms and IM tools, supported by the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between the two organizations to improve the global community's support to HMA in Iraq.

This meeting confirms the common areas of interest of the two organizations, and it paves the way for further conversations on an expanded and coordinated response to the challenges posed to the various aspects of Information Management for Humanitarian Mine Action, both in Iraq and globally.

As part of a project funded by the Swedish Red Cross to strengthen the Iraqi Red Crescent Society's (IRCS) Information Management (IM) capabilities, iMMAP Iraq conducted a training program for IRCS's WASH and Health departments, from April 21 to May 2, 2019.

The IRCS staff were trained on the foundations of IM, the efficient use of Microsoft Office Suite and the migration of data collection and reporting mechanisms from paper to electronic formats by using an integrated information and knowledge management (KM) system, developed explicitly by iMMAP for the IRCS.

After obtaining these new skills and knowledge during the training, the IRCS representatives will train their colleagues in other IRCS offices across the country, as a cost-effective method of transferring and building up institutional knowledge.

The next phase of this program will deliver intermediate and advanced level content for IRCS heads of departments and staff, for effective use of the IM and KM systems to improve the quality of the data collected, the speed of analyses and the access to information across the organization.
