UNHRD currently has two LABs (in Brindisi and Dubai) that serve a number of important purposes by promoting the research on innovative products aimed at improving the efficiency and performance management of UNHRD. The steady increase in emergencies, volume of activities and the growing number of Partners require a more robust ‘back end’ that can provide the most accurate data quickly and in a user friendly manner.
Cooperation and knowledge sharing are key assets. The LABs work with all the Donors and Partners willing to enhance their efforts, and strategic partnerships with universities support the training of high skilled and resilient young professional able to respond to the complex challenges the humanitarian community is facing.
Ongoing projects include both system upgrades and development projects, supporting increased operational performance, better operational and financial analyses, improved reporting capability and greater transparency.
