2. Information management in the field

  • Afghanistan Information Service

    AIMS is a joint venture between UNOCHA and UNDP, reporting directly to the UN Coordinator for Afghanistan. AIMS will receive strategic guidance from an Advisory Board composed of members from the UN, NGO and donor community working for Afghanistan.

    AIMS is comprised of two components, the Humanitarian Information Center for Afghanistan (HICFA) and the Project Management Information System (ProMIS). The HICFA was established by OCHA to act as a central location for data and information resources, with the aim of reinforcing co-ordination and humanitarian response activities. ProMIS (initiated in 1997 by UNDP and FAO) aims to enhance the capacity of UN Agencies, NGOs and the donor community to undertake analysis and planning for operational activities as well as common programming for Afghan rehabilitation and development activities. Since ProMIS and the HICFA share many similarities UNOCHA and UNDP decided to join the two projects together into an Information Management Service for Afghanistan.


  • Sierra Leone and East Timor This document presents the results of the work undertaken to develop the Learning Office concept since the April 2000 ALNAP Biannual Meeting. The consultants undertook visits to Sierra Leone and East Timor/Australia during August to obtain the views of agency personnel on the Learning Office concept and consider how it would have functioned in these two contexts. Additional interviews were undertaken with a small number of key agency personnel in Geneva, New York and the UK.
