Investigating Safe Data Sharing and Systems Interoperability in Humanitarian Cash Assistance
This report offers a technical landscaping of the current state of data sharing and interoperability in the sector and evaluates the potential of emerging technologies and operating models to address challenges in current approaches. The analysis is focused on cash programming, and specifically on two use cases: deduplication of beneficiaries, and referrals of individuals.
Enabling Dignified Humanitarian Assistance Through Safe Data Sharing
The landscape mapping report is divided into five separate reports. The overview report covers high-level drivers and challenges, opportunities for improving the interoperability of systems and data sharing in the context of cash and voucher assistance (CVA). Then four separate ‘use case’ reports relate to ‘pain points’ in the overall CVA business process.
USE CASE 1 – Deduplication of people, families or households
Deduplication of people, families or households
USE CASE 2 – Organizational referral
Sharing data on which organisations can provide what kind of support to whom
USE CASE 3 – Individual referral
Sharing data on a person with a partner, donor or government for follow-up services
