USAID Office for Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA)

In October 2017, we began a four-year programme with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Office for Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA).

The programme aims to improve the ways in which geographical information systems (GIS), mapping and spatial analysis are used in humanitarian emergencies. Geospatial services have the potential to bring great benefits to humanitarian response, supporting an understanding of what and where needs are greatest.
