The UNMAS-GICHD Technology Workshop is the premiere event for humanitarian mine action operators and developers to meet and learn from each other about latest innovations and research as well as challenges, concerns and opportunities from industry innovators and experts.
The NOMAD workshop we organized in January 27-28th in Amman, Jordan, with the support from Solidarités International and UNHCR was a great success. Many of the 106 participants from the event expressed their wish to keep the NOMAD community alive between events, which encouraged us to finish the update of our website and the launch of a Slack communication platform.

The humanitarian system is generating tremendous amounts of information. Collecting timely and reliable data plays a key role in guiding strategic programming and ensuring an effective and accountable humanitarian response towards affected populations. Recently, there has been an increase in reliance on mobile data collection tools in needs assessment, programme monitoring, and other activities around the humanitarian programme cycle.
