Strong Information Management (IM), carried out in support of coordination processes will support relevant actors to work with the same or complementary information and baseline data when making decisions. Properly collected and managed data during emergencies can furthermore support in early recovery, recovery, and disaster preparedness activities. Information Management is therefore both a time-critical intervention to support timely evidence-based decision making in the cluster/sector but is also a responsibility and accountability by its agreement to the IASC Guidance on Responsibilities of Cluster/Sector Leads and OCHA for IM.
IM in a coordinated emergency response improves the capacity of stakeholders in analysis and decision-making through strengthened collection, processing, interpretation and dissemination of information and data at the intra and inter-cluster/sector level. Information management is, in this sense, the foundation on which decision-making for a coordinated and effective response is based.
