Digital Humanitarian Network

The purpose of the Digital Humanitarian Network (DHNetwork) is to leverage digital networks in support of 21st century humanitarian response. More specifically, the aim of this network-of-networks is to form a consortium of Volunteer & Technical Communities (V&TCs) and to provide an interface between formal, professional humanitarian organizations and informal yet skilled-and-agile volunteer & technical networks. Services offered by members of the DHNetwork are listed here. We are taking an iterative approach in developing this interface and will expand membership to this network over time. Membership is by organization only. We also plan to organize a crisis simulation to assess our worfklows in the near future.

The purpose of the DHNetwork Coordinators is to review activation-requests and rapidly liaise with the different volunteer & technical teams who are members of Digital Humanitarians to build a Solution Team best able to act on a request. The Coordinators aim to provide a response to every request within 24 hours. More information about the coordinators and their role is available here.
