Systems interoperability & data portability for CVA Webinar

Systems interoperability & data portability for CVA Webinar

January 25, 2023

Online

As organizations try to respond with and scale up humanitarian cash assistance the topics of data sharing, systems interoperability, and data portability among affected communities and actors including aid organizations, governments, and financial service providers become important. On September 2022, the Donor Cash Forum shared their Statement and Guiding Principles on Interoperability of Data Systems in Humanitarian Cash Programming, highlighting the donors’ perspectives and support for the humanitarian sector to achieve such interoperability to help address programming efficiencies but also benefits for affected people including increasing inclusion in programming and increasing people’s rights and control towards their personal data.

This webinar aims to present the projects supported by ECHO on this topic: DIGID Interoperability Initiative and CCD Data Portability project. The DIGID Interoperability Initiative is exploring the technical aspects required to enable the secure and safe exchange of data between systems. This project is being implemented by the Dignified Identities in Cash Assistance (DIGID) consortium comprised of IFRC, Norwegian Refugee Council, Norwegian Red Cross, and Save the Children Norway. The CCD Portability project seeks to identify and lay the human capacity and governance groundwork for data portability and ‘putting people at the centre of data management’. This project is being implemented by the Collaborative Cash Delivery (CCD), a network of 14 of the largest international NGOs who operate in every global humanitarian crisis that provides cash and voucher assistance.

The webinar will take place on Wednesday 25th January at 13:00 CET. The webinar will last 60 minutes and will be delivered in English.
