Activation Requested (7 - Nov 2013)
In response to Typhoon Yolanda, the DHN Network has mobilized to support Palau and the Philippines. We have been contacted by United Nations Office of Coordination for Humanitarian Affairs, the Philippines Red Cross to assist in providing information management support.
Over a hundred organizations including ninety three relief organizations and seven digital organizations from the volunteer & technical community (V&TC) are responding to the monsoon floods in India. Over 4,200 villages are impacted by catastrophic flooding. On July 4th the Digital Humanitarian Network activation received a request from SEEDS India for mapping support and for collating aid response by region. The 3W Report (“Who, What Where”) is a report compiled from traditional and new media on who is responding, where, with what aid.
Ce document est destiné aux entités humanitaires formelles enclines à collaborer avec les CV&T. Il est particulièrement adapté aux besoins des organisations précédemment exposées aux CV&T et à leur travail qui recherchent des conseils pratiques afin de se développer. Ce guide vise à permettre aux acteurs concernés de mieux comprendre les dynamiques de travail avec les CV&T, de mieux formuler leurs demandes et de maximiser les avantages d'une telle collaboration.
