Global Shelter Cluster Information Management and Assessment

The Information Management (IM) & Assessment (IMAS) toolkit has been developed for Shelter cluster coordinators, and information management officers at country level.

Building on the work done in reference to IM and assessments in the GSC coordination toolkit (CTK), the purpose of the IMAS is to serve as one point of reference for IM and assessment tasks and activities in support to core coordination functions.

The aim of the IMAS toolkit is to: 

  1. Save time by having editable examples
  2. Inspire coordination teams and IMOs with guidance notes, standards, strategies, factsheets and Cluster related documentation relating to IM and assessments that they can adapt to their contexts to facilitate coordination
  3. Standardise – within reason – the basic set of tools a Cluster could put in place to facilitate the coordination of the shelter response in country
  4. Create a common understanding of IM and assessments by highlighting key resource documents 
  5. Provide a framework for IM and assessment processes.
