Improving the humanitarian response in emergency settings

Jonas Herzog, GIS Coordinator, iMMAP

 

Evidence-based decisions that save lives

Seven years and counting, the Syrian crisis has displaced over 11 million people. And the conflict is far from over; every day we hear about new clashes, airstrikes, and explosions in many parts of Syria. It’s estimated that 4.6 billion USD are needed to meet the urgent needs of the most vulnerable people.

iMMAP has been working to understand and coordinate relief efforts to meet these needs for the last five years. Mr. Herzog shares how geospatial and human geography data are critical to their programs, including population movement monitoring, food security cluster analysis, and OCHA support coordination.
