What is the DTM&Partners toolkit?​

DTM data is shared with humanitarian actors to inform response. In partnership with many of the Global Clusters, Areas of Responsibility and Working Groups, DTM has developed tools to support and strengthen cooperation in the field and ensure that the data collected is useful to Partners’ humanitarian responses.​

The DTM & Partners Toolkit contains these tools that facilitate implementation in the field: trainings, guidance and examples on IM  for specific sectors, guidance and comics on DTM and Partners cooperation, FAQs, lists of DTM datasets used for decision-making, and the DTM and Partners Field Companion. ​

You can write to DTMSupport@iom.int to propose new tools that will help your work

Comments by partners 

“In the past, when collecting primary data in schools, some parents asked us to help. We were upset, as we did not know what we could do to help. After this training, we know what we can do” – about the Training on Safely responding to Incidents Disclosure when Collecting Data.
