Design and Implementation of a Humanitarian Information System and Migration Information Management Training Course

This work is part of the Project: Humanitarian response to the migration emergency by mixed groups: Consortium-LIFE whose overall objective is to provide comprehensive humanitarian assistance to migrants in transit in Honduras. It is funded by UNICEF Honduras (BPRM) and is being implemented by the Consortium of humanitarian organisations. LIFE-HONDURAS: Action Against Hunger, Foundation for Relief of Suffering (FAS), ChildFund International, Adventist Agency for Development and Assistance Resources (ADRA), Pure Water for the World (PWW).

In this project we have worked to Strengthen the migration information management system in the Central American Dry Corridor to anticipate possible migration crises and identify priority territories and populations to be served and transfer capacities to public institutions, universities and Central American NGOs for the analysis of information, prediction of humanitarian needs and dissemination of evidence on the situation. The main objective of this project is to establish an information management system linked to the platform PREDISAN to help monitor the current situation and humanitarian needs of the migrant population as well as evidence-based decision-making by humanitarian actors.

Central America has been experiencing irregular income of migrants of different nationalities for some time , which has led to the issuance of emergency declarations by the authorities due to the scarcity of formal reception centers for migrants in transit. In addition, the deficiencies suffered by the area to attend to the humanitarian needs of its citizens has led international organizations and NGOs to seek a solution that favors greater and better humanitarian response capacity and generate more agile mechanisms that facilitate the deployment of humanitarian aid with strengthened capacities, coordination and rapid response, and the link with other organizations.
