Humanitarian ID

Phase: RELEASED

Origin: COMMUNITY

Humanitarian ID is a single contact management app for everyone working in humanitarian crises and disasters. It was first deployed during the Nepal earthquake and is now being used in more and more countries. ReliefWeb is now one of the platforms and services that HID lets users log in with single sign-on.

Humanitarian Videos

Phase: BETA

Origin: RW IDEAS

Video reporting has become an increasingly effective way for humanitarian organizations to communicate the work they undertake. ReliefWeb is testing a new humanitarian ‘Videos’ section to help you access a collection of humanitarian information videos from our content partners.

Emergency Alert System

Phase: RELEASED

Origin: COMMUNITY

Emalsys is a tool to help humanitarian organisations manage their emergency rosters. Visualize in real time who is available, access their profile, location and set of skills to deploy them efficiently to the field. Emalsys was developed in partnership with the IFRC Emergency Response Units and designed to be used by any organisation. The quick alert launcher is powered by the ReliefWeb API and will be released mid-October 2015.

Interactive Timeline Map

Phase: BETA

Origin: RW IDEAS

Visualizing humanitarian information through interactive tools has the opportunity to help users digest multiple and complex information. OCHA’s Visual Information Unit, with technical support of ReliefWeb, has developed a pilot timeline map to display humanitarian information, situation timelines and maps.

Humanitarian Data Exchange

Phase: BETA

Origin: COMMUNITY

Data is critical to making informed decisions during disasters but often humanitarian data is hard to find and use for analysis. We are launching a new lab project to create a prototype data platform for the humanitarian community.
