Globally Internally Displaced Persons (IDP)
Database - http://www.idpproject.org/IDP_project/Info_symposium.pdf
Lessons learned in developing a global IDP information project. The
Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) has since December 1999 offered the humanitarian community
comprehensive and updated information on internal displacement around the world through
its Global IDP Database. This information initiative is one component of the Global IDP
Project (http://www.idpproject.org), which also provides training and its own publications
on internal displacement. The dramatic growth in the availability of humanitarian
information during this two-year period has not just enabled the Database to realize its
advocacy role, but also to provide a valuable working tool for humanitarian actors to
access IDP information in a cost-effective manner. Future development of the Database is
now very much dependent on diminishing the gaps that exist in the reporting on internal
displacement and improving the variable quality of existing information.
