In 2016, Cisco Foundation provided Mercy Corps with funds to conduct a landscape analysis of existing mobile tools, products, and operational processes used by various NGOs and UN agencies in support of beneficiary information management and distribution tracking within humanitarian programming--like food distributions or cash transfers.

While a variety of individualized component technologies exist, they have yet to function in a ""plug-and-play"" environment, where anyone can setup technologies in field without much support.

This session will summarize Mercy Corps findings from this work and also facilitate discussion around beneficiary registration and information management practices across various agencies and sectors. This includes topics such as biometrics, blockchain, data privacy, and data security in fragile contexts.
