Ecosystem


Ambassador are the cornerstone of the Data preparedness ecosystem.
Your role as an ambassador is to collect 3W information in their area of intervention.
Fields Data will provide all the necessary support to make the information gathering process as effective and simple as possible. For example, a form will be shared in KoboToolBox so that all the information is sent automatically when you have an internet connection.

Impact

Thanks to the information shared by the ambassadors together with the information found on the internet we created the most robust 3W maps available, with information about the work of the local organizations.
This information is made public on international repositories for local organisations like HDX or IATI.
With the organisations identified in the process that are interested, we will form a national Data exchange channel where FD will share the 3w map and the latest information from the sector coming international sources that can be relevant for local organisations,

Requirements to be an ambassador:

  1. A social-impact driven organisation or consultant
  2. In case of an organisation, it should be registered in the country
  3. Having a territorial knowledge of the area where they work
  4. Sharing Fields Data’s principles of collaboration, transparency and efficiency
  5. Wanting to improve the information system of the sector
  6. And last but not the least:

  7. Believing in the localisation of aid as a driver of sustainable endogenous development

In case of disaster

The ambassadors group is the coordination body that allow the humanitarian assistance efforts (within the DpE) to be delivered in a effective and timely manner.

“Data have a better idea” picture??

Nowadays a lot of important information is generated in thousands of websites from different parts of the world. We want to bring to one place all relevant information to local organizations so that they don't miss any opportunity.

For this purpose we have created a national telegram channel where we post weekly filtered information about training, calls for proposals, conferences, job offers, policies, news that may be of interest to local organisations.

Also, local organizations can share information with the rest of the channel members such as sectoral studies, findings, needs assessments, lessons learned in their daily work.

Requirements to be part of the DEC:

  1. Being interested on the social-impact driven sector
  2. Having interest to keep posted on the latest information
  3. shares Fields Data’s principles of collaboration, transparency and efficiency

In case of disaster

The DpC is the platform where all the humanitarian updates are shared to inform the humanitarian response. In case of disaster the information will be on a daily basis and only related to the crisis response.

Can we build a system that allows us to generate data from the community itself?

Or will we continue to see international humanitarian organisations leading the needs assessments in communities that are not their own?

“it is now widely recognised that marginalised communities do not figure in the available national-level datasets. Filling data gaps doesn’t just mean disaggregating the data we have, it many cases it means collecting new data via new processes. It means we must look to and invest in citizen- and community-generated data from civil society organisations (CSOs) who represent marginalised communities and can reach them, to understand if we are on track to realise the SDGs and deliver on the principle of leaving no one behind.” Harpinder Collacott , Annie Namala, Javier Carranza Tresoldi, nov. 2021

A roster is a pool of trained and qualified experts in a given field. Fields Data is creating a pool of field enumerators ready to be deployed (in their country) in case of need (natural disaster or other).

During the time the FEs are not active/deployed, information on the status of the DPecosystem will be retrieved and their trainings will be recycled if necessary.

In case of disaster

The entire roster will receive an alert with the information available on the natural disaster and the data collection work needed. Roster members will declare their availability or not. From among the available members, the ambassadors will select the candidates whose profile and area of intervention best fits the work required. Data collection will begin as soon as possible to determine what the impact of the disaster is/has been and to identify the most pressing needs of the affected communities. The information gathered is transmitted in real time to the DA team to draw conclusions and share them with the humanitarian community.

Requirements for being enumerator:

  1. Training path fulfilled (Mobile data collection training, etc.)
  2. Fluent in one official language of the country and one of the followings (english/french/spanish)
  3. Having a territorial knowledge of the area of work
  4. Have a smartphone
  5. Share Fields Data’s principles of collaboration, transparency and efficiency
  6. Driver's license or ability to move independentlys

Unfortunately, the number of natural disasters as well as their impact is increasing, largely due to climate change.
When we talk about a natural disaster, every minute counts to save lives.
Therefore, we have created a pool of volunteers called “disaster analysts” who is ready to be “activated” in case of need (natural disaster or other) and provide remote support to the humanitarian assistance on the ground.

Requirements for being enumerator:

  1. Training path fulfilled
  2. Being qualified
  3. Fluent in at least one of the following languages: english/french/spanish
  4. Share Fields Data’s principles of collaboration, transparency and efficiency
  5. Willing to volunteer to help people affected by disasters

During the time the DAs are not active/deployed, information on the status of the ecosystem will be retrieved.

In case of disaster

The entire roster will receive an alert with the information available on the natural disaster and the data analysis work needed.
Roster members will declare their availability or not.
From among the available members, the ambassadors will select the candidates whose profile best fits the analysis required.
DA will run the data analysis with the information received directly from the affected and FD will coordinate these efforts.
