What is DMIS ?
The Disaster Management Information System (DMIS) is a web-based working tool made accessible only to Red Cross and Red Crescent staff working in National Societies, delegations and Geneva headquarters. It is a system from which users will be able to access:
- real time information on disaster trends
- online internal and external resources
- tools and databases
The DMIS project started in February 2001 as a follow up to Strategy 2010
and in response to the need for informed decisions, speed and efficient operational
readiness. DMIS is the result of a major effort made by the Federation in addressing
the complexity of information exchange in the humanitarian community and to
support an efficient disaster preparedness and response for the whole Federation's
Red Cross and Crescent network at a global level. DMIS continues in the same
vein with the successor Strategy 2020.
