2. Information management in the field
- Afghanistan Information Service http://hicfa.itos.uga.edu/
AIMS is a joint venture between UNOCHA and UNDP, reporting directly to the UN Coordinator
for Afghanistan. AIMS will receive strategic guidance from an Advisory Board composed of
members from the UN, NGO and donor community working for Afghanistan.
AIMS is comprised of two components, the Humanitarian Information Center for Afghanistan
(HICFA) and the Project Management Information System (ProMIS). The HICFA was established
by OCHA to act as a central location for data and information resources, with the aim of
reinforcing co-ordination and humanitarian response activities. ProMIS (initiated in 1997
by UNDP and FAO) aims to enhance the capacity of UN Agencies, NGOs and the donor community
to undertake analysis and planning for operational activities as well as common
programming for Afghan rehabilitation and development activities. Since ProMIS and the
HICFA share many similarities UNOCHA and UNDP decided to join the two projects together
into an Information Management Service for Afghanistan.

This document presents the results of the work undertaken to develop the Learning Office
concept since the April 2000 ALNAP Biannual Meeting. The consultants undertook visits to
Sierra Leone and East Timor/Australia during August to obtain the views of agency
personnel on the Learning Office concept and consider how it would have functioned in
these two contexts. Additional interviews were undertaken with a small number of key
agency personnel in Geneva, New York and the UK.
