“The UN Crisis Information Management Strategy (CiMS) is based on the recognition that governments, the UN, IFIs, non-governmental organisations, business and media have significant experience in crisis response. Yet, no single agency, department or actor has the capacity or sole mandate to address these crises. This makes it vital that everyone involved in disaster prevention and response harmonise the use tools and systems to produce, disseminate and archive information in a manner that can be scaled up or rapidly focused to deal with any type of crisis.”

The excellent efforts to harness information and communication technology of ICT for Peace Foundation, as well as the UN CiMS campaign, will both be offered the outputs of MyInform.
