Contributing to an informed response to internal displacement

Promoting collaboration and informed decision-making

Helping to collect accurate information about internal displacement

An effective response is by definition an informed response. To better assist, protect and seek solutions for internally displaced persons (IDPs), we must first find out who and where they are, and what challenges they face. At JIPS – the Joint IDP Profiling Service - we offer support in designing and implementing effective data collection activities.
