How can humanitarian organizations, states, civil society, academia and the private sector join forces to maximize the benefits of technology and humanitarian data while minimizing the risks of doing harm?

The Government of Switzerland, International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the OCHA Centre for Humanitarian Data (the Centre) launched the Humanitarian Data and Trust Initiative (HDTI) to explore this question and advance the protection and responsible use of data in humanitarian action.

One topic of interest for the HDTI is responsible data sharing with donors in humanitarian action. The HDTI initiated engagement on this topic in September 2020 through a strategic dialogue convened jointly with Wilton Park. The dialogue yielded a set of common objectives and risks as well as a set of open questions related to data sharing with donors. Two research projects were commissioned to explore these questions in collaboration with Humanitarian Conflict and Response Institute (HCRI) of the University of Manchester and the Global Public Policy Institute (GPPi).

This panel will bring together different stakeholders working on this topic. It will offer insights from the research and broader dialogue process led by HDTI, as well as evidence-based recommendations for responsible data sharing with donors.
