Roundtable #7 – Coordination and information management
Tuesday, November 6th, 2-3:15PM, Conference amphitheater
Collecting and assembling data from a large number of contributors is technically easier than ever. But the multiplication of user-friendly solutions does not solve all the problems: coordination mechanisms remains necessary in order to allow the various actors (IT professionals, humanitarian workers, data providers, beneficiaries) to add and use efficiently the data. These mechanisms can take different forms, from the partners reunion to the software.
Which methods and technology to coordinate humanitarian organizations? With which leading organization?
How to manage and coordinate the various sources of information on the field (particularly for the crowdsourcing projects)?
Which coordination tools to ensure that the information circulates between humanitarian workers on the field and NGOs' and international organizations' HQs?
