Module A2: ‘Information Management’ is in Section (A) ‘Policy and Planning’ of our three part series ‘Keeping up with COVID-19: Essential guidance for NGO security risk management’.
As a consequence of the global pandemic the volume of information required to inform decision-making in humanitarian and development organisations rose exponentially. One of the biggest challenges has been the quantity and speed of available information, disinformation and misinformation.
This module highlights the practice of good information management as essential action to inform decision making; assisting organisations in fulfilling their duty of care to staff and ensuring that they feel safe and cared for.
The module has been developed and written by Heather Hughes and Lisa Reilly of GISF, with additional input from Christian Wille of Insecurity Insight and James Blake, an independent journalist.
