IMPROVING HUMANITARIAN RESPONSE THROUGH TECHNOLOGY AND PARTNERSHIPS
In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic posed extraordinary challenges for organizations providing humanitarian assistance across the world, which exacerbated the social and economic impacts of the health crisis. This situation became a unique challenge for humanitarian actors, who were forced to reformulate their response and seek new strategies to face the various scenarios that emerged due to the pandemic.
In this context, iMMAP sought to leverage its partnerships and experience in implementing cutting-edge technology in the humanitarian information management sector with the goal of supporting partners to improve the quality of their response and the efficient utilization of resources amid the pandemic-inflicted challenges.
In April and November 2020, iMMAP organized two events centered on innovation and new technologies to improve humanitarian response.
Attended by 1,200 people, in these webinars more than 25 organizations presented their advances in key areas such as artificial intelligence, remote data collection, money transfers, and information systems.
iMMAP provided a common platform to make available to the humanitarian community the innovations that organizations, partners, and academia are implementing to improve humanitarian response. Additionally, iMMAP sought to take these initiatives forward and invited partners to implement these technologies by creating communication bridges between service providers and organizations.
