Maps are crucial to help make rapid sense of the chaos and plan the best response to save lives, minimise suffering and reduce long-term impacts. Without maps telling them what’s happening on the ground, aid-givers can be blindfolded.
MapAction works across the globe to ensure disaster response teams have access to the maps and data they need whenever they’re needed.
We are the official charity of GEO Business 2019.
As well as helping to prepare for emergencies before they happen, our team of expert volunteers is ready to respond to disasters in-country or remotely, anywhere in the world and at very short notice.
Although MapAction is a small organisation, by working through a team of highly skilled volunteers and operating at the heart of humanitarian responses to improve their effectiveness, we are able to have a profound and far-reaching impact, making aid go much further.
