Global Information Management Working Group


The Global Information Management Working Group (Global IMWG) is a forum of HQ information management focal points from humanitarian organizations. It has operated since early 2006, mostly as an informal body, as well as an IASC Task Force between 2009 and 2011. The aim of the IMWG is to strengthen humanitarian information management, assessments, and analysis to support improved decision making in emergency preparedness and response.

The IMWG welcomes participants from organizations working on humanitarian issues, including the UN, NGOs, global clusters, volunteer organizations, academia and donors. The IMWG meets on a regular basis at the Palais des Nations in Geneva.

OCHA acts as chair and secretariat of the IMWG. To join the IMWG mailing list, please contact Audrey Janvier:
