Serving as the humanitarian response cluster lead, UNICEF called on Ona to support the National Institute of Disaster Management in Mozambique (INGC) to help the region improve its preparedness for future events.
Infrastructure Service Mapping
Using the platform the team was able to map all key infrastructure services, including functional energy posts, water points, and other essential infrastructure, against where the flooding occurred.
The team was able to map population census data (gathered from the government) to help emergency response teams assess how many people were affected, and in which areas.
Users of the platform were able to assess current road access conditions (based on WFP data), and visualize data from rapid and aerial assessments (performed by OCHA and ICRC). The teams on the ground were using data pulled from these assessments and from OCHA’s Humanitarian Data Exchange through Canopy Analytics and visualized in real-time, easy to use dashboards and maps.
Ona’s Rapid Response platform — facilitated by an integrated set of Ona products and services — became the national platform for Cyclone Idai disaster relief.
