Background

The outbreak of COVID-19 brought about unprecedented change to the way governments, institutions, and people do business globally including Nigeria, where the first case was reported on the 27th of February 2020. Late 2019, the situation in northeast Nigeria was already fragile with an estimated 7.9 million people in need of humanitarian assistance due to the protracted conflict. The COVID-19 outbreak and imposed movement restrictions including on trade, added the brunt of an additional one third – within a couple of months – to the people in need reaching 10.6 million. The humanitarian community is required to maintain the presence and increase reach in the northeast while access to updated and disaggregated information became more challenging. Therefore, actors will relay further on the use of secondary data and remote data collection methods.

iMMAP is an international not-for-profit 501(c)3 non-governmental organization (NGO) that provides targeted information management support to partners responding to complex humanitarian and development challenges. For more than 15 years, we have promoted measurable change in people’s lives through our core philosophy: better data leads to better decisions and, ultimately, better outcomes. Our expertise in data collection, analysis and presentation has revolutionized the decision making process for our diverse, multi-sectoral partners who seek enhanced coordination and sustainable solutions through information management. We are a robust and dynamic team of recognized experts in social science, software development, statistics, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), performance monitoring and evaluation, technical assistance and capacity development.

At iMMAP, our partners and those in need are front and center in all of our efforts. Our mission is to empower the world’s most vulnerable through the enhanced use of data to inform decision making. We envision a world where no one suffers due to lack of access to timely, relevant, and reliable information that has the power to transform lives.

What We Do

Emergency responders, development practitioners, governments and funders often have to make serious and timely decisions under fast paced and chaotic circumstances. When facing complex development challenges, natural disasters and emergencies, it’s critical to make sound choices rooted in real-time knowledge of who is doing what, where they are doing it, and what needs to be done. Access to this critical information positions you to avoid costly or duplicative efforts and, ultimately, to effectively direct support to the people who need it the most.

We are passionate about unleashing the power of data to transform the way our partners respond to real development and humanitarian challenges. We combine our demonstrated expertise in data analytics, customized assessment and monitoring and evaluation methodologies, field based research, and our suite of in-house developed open-sourced software solutions to help you reach a common operating picture and set measurable objectives and priorities. We directly develop or support your organization to transform the data into usable and discernible tools and products such as maps, remote sensing and imagery data, innovative mobile data collection tools, and performance monitoring and security solutions to use in the context of humanitarian access and risk management and beyond.

We apply our core competencies to empower our partners to build a common operating picture across three key sectors:

  • Disaster Risk Management:support to manage and minimize vulnerabilities, stabilize crises, coordinate across sectors and build local capacity to deliver services;
  • Emergency Response:support coordination and build local capacity to better respond to emergencies and humanitarian crises, including natural and man-made disasters, and;
  • Development:apply our multi-sectoral development expertise and build appropriate information management systems to support every stage of a project’s life cycle.

We offer strategic and operational decision support to meet your toughest challenges. We facilitate collaboration in gatheringsharing and  analyzing data and information. We have robust, multi-sectoral expertise in emergency and humanitarian response, logistics,  humanitarian access and risk mitigation, mine action, health, agriculture and food security, animal and environmental conservation, democracy and human rights, water and sanitation,  and shelter, refugee and internally displaced peoples (IDPs)management. We deploy a full range of technical personnel, services and tools to assist our partners to optimally get the job done.

Our History

Founded in the rich tradition of the Vietnam Veterans of America Foundation (VVAF), International Campaign to Ban Landmines and the 1997 Nobel Peace Prize, we are the legacy of the Survey Action Center (SAC) and the Global Landmine Survey (GLS) initiative. The iMMAP team formed in 1998, leading the first internationally-coordinated effort to combine information management, sociology and GIS technology to define the scourge of landmines and explosive remnants of war and change the way their impact on society is measured. Our work championing information management and GIS technology has expanded beyond humanitarian mine action to the broader relief and international development arena. We have two headquarters offices in Washington, DC and Lyon, France.

Our Finances

We believe that sound financial stewardship is essential and strive to be efficient and transparent to ensure the greatest quality of assistance. iMMAP is a  publicly funded not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization, legally registered in the United States and France.
