Humanitarian Outcomes estimates that there were around 5,000 organizations in the humanitarian system in 2021. These figures are likely an underestimate, particularly if we include the role played by local organizations in relation to protection referrals and referrals for other types of humanitarian services. The rapid increase in the use of multipurpose cash as a modality presents a challenge to the sectoral approach to coordination. This use case explores the demand for greater interoperability and/or sharing of data on which organizations can provide what kind of assistance to which people.
