Focus on Core CODs before COD-CS datasets.
Coordinate: One cluster's information resources may fit another cluster's information requirements. For instance, the Nutrition cluster may have data the Health cluster requires. Use meetings/Skype etc. to communicate data needs and availability.
Listen to stakeholders at coordination meetings - they may have unpredictable requirements or unanticipated resources.
Share data on HDX (include metadata and identify any issues with data and the estimated time it will be corrected)
Share information about the dataset available through existing networks:
your IM network, OCHA - FIS, HQ agency, Emergency coordinator, HCT, Cluster coordinators, Head of Office, checked-in responders on humanitarian.id
Share data ASAP even if not in perfect condition, include metadata. If there is nothing on HDX then people will start using what they can find which can lead to significant mistakes.
Consider creating 'CODs to GO' to hand out to people leaving going into the deep field,
Advocate immediately and firmly for the use of P-codes throughout the humanitarian response.
Some responders may not know about CODs, share basic information about CODs, their purpose, value, and where to find them.
