HumanitarianResponse.info is comprised of different features which help global and operational offices manage their content in their sections of the website - they are reflected in the primary navigation structure of a space in HumanitarianResponse.info. These features and tools were developed in close collaboration with our field and global offices in order to meet their needs. Depending on the needs of a particular space, they can be turned on or off.

All the features available in the HumanitarianResponse.info are listed below.

Events

This is a meeting calendar used by country offices to maintain their meeting schedules. The feature is mainly used by country or operational sites to manage meetings in emergencies but can be used for other purposes as well.

Documents

All types of documents uploaded by country offices are available using here: assessments, reports, snapshots, analysis reports, etc. Uploaded to the site by content editors and managers, the documents are then publically available with powerful filtering options to assist visitors with their search.

This feature is mainly used by the operational sites and other global sites who have lots of documents to manage and share with humanitarian community or visitors.

Maps/Infographics

This is a popular feature used by country/operational sites to manage their visual content such as maps, infographics and dashboard documents. Just like with the Documents, maps and infographics are available along with with the filters on the left side in the page to allow users to narrow their search while looking for particular visual content.

Assessments

All the assessment related content such as assessment reports, questionnaires, and assessment findings are available through the Assessment Feature. If this feature is not available when the site is created, it can be enabled depending on the needs of the operation or country office.

Datasets

A list of all datasets uploaded to HDX which have been tagged with the relevant country name. More about this initiative is available from our blog.

Offices / Coordination Hubs

The feature is used to present contact information for offices / coordination hubs set up in a given country or operation. These are usually set up at a provincial or state level, depending on their geographical coverage and on the presence of UN organizations, clusters or other humanitarian organizations involved in humanitarian response.

When adding new Office or Coordination hub in the site, contact information such as phone numbers, email addresses, location and physical address should be provided so that humanitarian community can locate the offices.

If - in addition to providing contact information - you would like to assist your visitors to find content belonging to a specific office, you need to define it as a coordination hub in your admin dashboard. Once it's properly set up, and your content tagged with that particular hub, visitors will be able to filter your content accordingly.
