Humanitarian information management support remains an essential component in augmenting the capacity of the humanitarian partners responding to the crisis in north eastern Nigeria. This is specifically true because many of the partners do not only have multiple responsibilities, but also lack information management expertise. This has on many occasions proved to be an impediment to informed, coordinated and effective response. Effective, targeted information management support plays a central role and is necessary for informed, evidence-based decision-making necessary to respond to the needs of over 7.7 million people in need of life-saving assistance in the north east of the country. It does not only form the basis for coordination and decision-making, but also has a positive impact on how national and international resources are mobilized and utilized.
