In order to efficiently develop a project, it helps to be able to understand and analyze all of the existing relevant data. Because of this, we decided that logging all of this data in one easy-to-reach location would benefit all humanitarian groups looking to make an impact.
Since 2018, we’ve kept a table of useful websites that provide valuable data for humanitarian organizations. Through the open-source data hub, these resources can now be accessed by anyone who needs them.
If you have website suggestions to add to the open-source-data hub, don’t hesitate to reach out.
