iMMAP is an international nongovernmental organisation that provides information management services to humanitarian and development organizations. Through information management, we help our partners target assistance to the world’s most vulnerable populations. Our core philosophy is that better data leads to better decisions and that better decisions lead to better outcomes. iMMAP’s critical support to information value chains helps to solve operational and strategic challenges of our partners in both emergency and development contexts by enabling evidence-based decision-making for better outcomes.
Since 2003, iMMAP has worked to establish a common operating picture (COP) for Humanitarian Mine Action (HMA) in Iraq. We work with the Iraqi government and its partners to build the capacity to manage explosive ordnance (EO) mitigation activities.
With support from the U.S. Department of State’s Office of Weapons Removal and Abatement (PM/WRA), we help partners to identify and prioritize which areas are in greatest need of assistance and improve coordination efforts by tracking who is doing what where and when.
iMMAP's Information Management System for Mine Action (IMSMA) and geographic information system (GIS) technical expertise supports the Iraq Ministry of Health and Environment’s Directorate of Mine Action (DMA) and the Iraq Kurdistan Mine Action Authority (IKMAA) to develop and maintain a reliable information management cell to produce maps and reports for landmine and ERW-related activity planning, prioritization and advocacy. Our custom-built IM tools and report production systems help HMA responders fill their information gaps in humanitarian operations. Bespoke IM products such as focused presentations or audio-visual material are delivered on a regular basis to the national mine action authorities, government bodies, international organizations and HMA stakeholders.
