We can help you with:

Preparedness & anticipatory action:

  • Capacity building – training humanitarians at all levels to understand and use mapping and data tools and techniques effectively
  • Bespoke GIS courses – training in geographical information systems tailored to local/regional contexts or specific humanitarian situations
  • Simulation exercises – helping to design and deliver realistic disaster simulation exercises to practice essential data and mapping skills.

Emergency response:

  • Ad-hoc training – providing people with the skills they need to carry out data and mapping tasks related to a particular humanitarian response.
