MIND is an automated, open source platform that integrates multiple non-traditional data sets to aid logistics planning and information management following natural disasters.
Following the 2018 earthquake, tsunami and subsequent liquefaction in Central Sulawesi (Indonesia), IOM joined forces with the Lab to undertake research using mobile network data from an Indonesian telecom with a view to gathering insights on internal displacement throughout affected districts.
To make data innovation work in practice and be mainstreamed means having those actors, who will use these tools and alternative data to inform decisions, be truly informed and discerning consumers. One cannot become fully informed and discerning about innovation at the actual time of a crisis — it has to happen before. Showcasing two fit-for-purpose tools, Pulse Lab Jakarta will highlight why data innovations and analytic partnerships are important for disaster management.
