At JIPS, we understand that every displacement situation is different, so we offer a wide range of services from direct work in the field, remote support, capacity building and scoping missions to strategic advice on identifying mechanisms to improve displacement data in specific situations.
We support governments, local authorities and humanitarian and development organisations at all stages of the profiling process, from planning, feasibility assessments and determining the most appropriate methodology to the sharing of tools and guidance during data analysis, reporting and dissemination.
We also conduct and facilitate training at the global, regional and national level. In-country training may be tailored to a specific profiling exercise, while broader initiatives – including its flagship Profiling Coordination Training (PCT) – aim to build capacity and a community of practice.
You want to address displacement and need sound and agreed-upon data to inform your action?
We encourage all partners, whether governments, humanitarian or development actors implementing or about to implement collaborative displacement profiling processes to contact us.
Requesting our support is really simple: you can fill in our support request form and send it our way any time, and we will review submissions twice a year, in May and in November. You can also get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information or to discuss your plans.
What is the added value of a long-term, direct support in countries?
Khadra Elmi, former Profiling Advisor, shares the challenges and lessons learned from her long-term deployment to Sudan, focusing on the importance of being in the country to provide additional support to coordination, joint analysis and community engagement and to contribute to building trust relations among partners.
We talked to Oscar Paz, Urban Programming Coordinator at World Vision Honduras, to discuss the challenges encountered during the profiling process in Honduras, as well as the opportunities and added value of engaging communities and working with local actors with a strong presence in the field.
