"Partnering with Fields data, which is an NGO not implementing its own projects in the country, ensures a certain objectivity in their reporting since they do not find themselves in conflict of interest trying to position themselves in a specific sector."
Valerie Frenay-UN RCO Burundi
"In the humanitarian sector, the information is critical for decision-making and coordination. Nevertheless, the public information you can find is very scattered and unreliable. Fields Data is tackling this void by collecting and sharing publicly the information and data that can be most relevant for the sector, starting with the 4W as an essential element."
Leandro Fernández Jardón-IOM Mali
"As IM OCHA in Burundi, I can state that Fields Data’s work is critical to provide a bird’s eye-view of the operational reality. Having actors with a strong local network and presence from the field, it is paramount in planning and executing new and future projects. Fields Data can play a key role as a neutral body in Accountability to Affected Population (AAP) and Communication with Affected Communities (CwC) to bring up the needs of communities and the impact of Humanitarian Actors’ response."
