European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (EU ECHO)

Since 2015, ECHO has been supporting us to carry out a programme of work with some of our partners designed to help improve humanitarian decision-making.

We do this by helping organisations to use maps and spatial analysis to present large quantities of complex data in simple, meaningful ways. This enables them to spot and address geographic vulnerabilities and improve communication around complex situations.

We are also helping our partners build their own capacity to use geographic information systems (GIS) and access and publish their data. We work with teams to help them understand which data sets they need, how to source and store them and how to visualise, publish and use them to maximum effect when needed.
