One of the challenges faced by humanitarian workers is access to timely, relevant and accurate information. New technology provides an opportunity for humanitarian workers to develop better ways to access and share this information, and get aid to those who need it more quickly and effectively. OCHA has developed the Humanitarian Kiosk to address the diverse information needs of humanitarian agencies and workers. This app enables an office to share key, up-to-date humanitarian content that is readily available for download from a mobile device. Users might be aid workers on the ground or senior UN managers attending high level meetings in New York, Nairobi or Bangkok.
