A joint review session on new technologies in the aid sector will be jointly hosted by ALNAP, CaLP and LMMS on Thursday March 29th, 2012 in London U.K.
This event will bring together a small number of key individuals interested in hands-on review of LMMS and for a review of the latest research findings from CaLP on new technologies in the aid sector. Please save the date and RSVP as soon as you can!
What to expect?
Many agencies have specifically asked to learn more about LMMS – a system for electronically managing beneficiaries and tying services to individuals. The morning session for this event will be dedicated to a hands-on walk-through of key features available in the system. This will be a good opportunity for those agencies that are considering using such a system in their operations.
The purpose of the morning session will be to educate by playing with the technology so as to learn what can be done with the system on
- Beneficiary registration,
- Managing aid deliveries,
- Donor reporting, and
- Offering new services such as health monitoring.
The session will also serve to corroborate and collect new feature enhancement requests from humanitarian agencies for improving the systems.
Who Should Attend?
Staff who should consider attending this session, include those involve in
- Operational deployments (directly or indirectly) associated with managing beneficiaries and aid distributions – cash, food or non-food items,
- Program Officers who work with operational staff and need to understand the systems for inclusion in donor proposal requests, and
- Support personnel such as logisticians and/or IT.
The afternoon session will be opened to a broader group and will present the latest research findings from CaLP on new technologies in the humanitarian sector as it relates particularly to cash based interventions. This will be followed by a panel discussion comprised of donor, private sector and NGO representation.
