Welcome to ICHA

The International Center for Humanitarian Affairs(ICHA) strives to create an appropriate and effective knowledge management framework that synthesizes multiple information technologies to collect, analyze, and, manage information and knowledge for supporting decision making in humanitarian action, disaster relief and improving community resilience.

The framework so developed is intended to help identify, specify and quantify information needs, track status of disaster scenarios and provide policy makers and practitioners with efficient and sustainable recommendations based on past experience and research based evidence.

ICHA is a knowledge hub which focuses on generating data and information through action based research that is relevant to communities dealing with situations that call for humanitarian, resilience building and development action.
