Our Core Activities
IMPACT implements information and knowledge management activities aiming to connect humanitarian and development stakeholders (project implementers, governance actors, donors) in order to improve the effectiveness, efficiency and efficacy of humanitarian and development interventions. IMPACT core activities are declined in several pillars:
1) Assessments: Through its field-based assessments, IMPACT supports aid actors to fill information gaps and enhance their planning capacity. IMPACT assessment and data management specialists can be rapidly deployed to conduct assessment in support of aid planning and to inform resilience and social cohesion programming.
2) Monitoring and Evaluation: IMPACT teams monitor and evaluate humanitarian and development programmes, projects and sector-level response, with an expertise that includes third party monitoring, impact evaluations, sector-response monitoring and evaluation.
3) Building Capacities of Organizations: Through its capacity building programme, IMPACT builds the capacity of organizations to gain a better understanding of crisis dynamics, be better prepared for future shocks and have an increased capacity to respond to the needs of affected populations. This can be done through trainings, provision of tools and mentorship programmes.4) Information Products: IMPACT develops a wide range of information solutions to facilitate decision making by aid actors. IMPACT’s information products include mapping products (static maps, interactive maps, web maps, info-graphics), narrative products (reports, factsheets, profiles) and data storage and management products (data portals, databases).
