Guided by the executive committee and advisory group, JIPS’ passionate and skilled team makes its global work possible. The organisation has two core units with dedicated management positions – field support & capacity building, and information management & innovation – and further staff working in coordination & management, communications & advocacy and grants & budget management.
JIPS’ team is guided by three core values:
The coordination & management team is responsible for JIPS’ overall leadership.
As JIPS’ Coordinator, Craig develops and manages JIPS as a sustainable inter-agency service, in line with our mission, identity, principles and strategic goals. This includes ensuring relevant and high-quality outputs, including support for governments and humanitarian and development actors, as well as representing JIPS and advocating at global and high political levels for improved evidence on displacement situations.
The field support and capacity-building unit provides services to partners on the ground and develops profiling tools, guides and other products for governments and humanitarian and development bodies.
Isis leads the development and implementation of JIPS’ field support and capacity building strategy across our strategic three goals, including the delivery of our support and advice to stakeholders working in displacement-affected contexts. With her background on urbanism and community engagement, she also contributes to refining profiling processes and tools in urban areas and leads our work on enhancing the participation of displacement-affected communities in data collection, analysis and development of recommendations.
Margharita coordinates the delivery of JIPS’ technical advice and capacity-building support to field partners, and handles requests for its services. She also helps to expand its practices by refining knowledge and tools in specialised areas, and provides direct support to country operations.
