Country Support

We support and advise for profiling exercises in displacement situations the world over, both on-site and remotely. We specialise in protracted displacement situations and urban settings, but our approach can be adapted to a range of scenarios. We tailor our support to identified data needs on the ground and works first and foremost to build its partners’ capacity. We aim to be a facilitator in collaborative and locally-owned profiling exercises, providing technical support and helping to establish consensus.

More details about the exercises we have supported are available by country via the below country map and also through the At a Glance series, available under resources.

Our experts are also always on hand if you require further information or would like to explore ways in which JIPS might support you.

Direct support

Our primary activity is to provide our partners with field support and advice, whether they are about to embark on a profiling exercise or already undertaking one, and whether their needs are technical, operational or strategic.

Support may include helping to:

  • assess the need for and feasibility of profiling,
  • coordination and project design to secure partnerships and set common objectives,
  • development and use of the most appropriate methodology and tools from start to finish, and
  • training in all phases of the process including methodology development, data collection, analysis, validation and reporting.

In-country training

We conduct and facilitate trainings tailored to specific profiling exercises. We help to identify training needs and develop strategies, and can design, facilitate or run workshops and courses.

Trainings can also be orientated thematically, focusing for example on the value of joint analysis or how to conduct a durable solutions analysis through profiling.
