About the Capacity Building Program

iMMAP is implementing the information management training and capacity building program in north eastern Nigeria with support from the USAID Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA).

The purpose is to facilitate capacity building, capacity strengthening and to empower humanitarian partners to leverage and optimize information management tools, technologies, plaforms and best practices to effectively respond to the humanitarian crisis in the north east.

About the Capacity Building Program Contents The program started in January 2018, with a participatory assessment of the information management and capacity building gaps and priorities amongst the humanitarian partners. iMMAP engages with humanitarian sectors and state level government authorities to identify the participants, and with the Information Management Unit of the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs in Maiduguri, to deliver and facilitate capacity building activities.
