ActivityInfo for Protection, Child Protection and GBV activities reporting monitoring
Why should I use ActivityInfo to monitor and coordinate Protection, Child Protection and GBV response activities?
ActivityInfo is a platform widely used for humanitarian coordination in various settings and clusters/sectors such as the Shelter, WASH, Education, Livelihoods, Health cluster/sector and more. Information management officers and cluster coordinators work together to collect and bring together the data under one, centralized web-based roof. This makes partner coordination easier and reporting more consistent as you move away from exchanging emails with spreadsheets and harmonizing data sheets. Reporting partners can simply login, add their data via desktop or mobile device while being online or offline.
Databases and forms can be designed to reflect the structure of your programmes while formulas, rules and locks ensure data quality and timeliness. Advanced permissions allow you to share only the data required with each partner organization and built-in reporting tools offer quick overviews via maps and pivot tables. Additionally, the platform can be integrated with visualization software easily so that you can create dynamic dashboards for your audiences to explore.
Finally, you can always count on our experienced team’s quick response to your questions and feel confident about the security of the data added to the platform. You can try a 3W database template to explore ActivityInfo on your own.

How can I procure ActivityInfo for Protection, Child Protection and GBV activities reporting?
ActivityInfo has a Global Frame Agreement in place with UNHCR the terms of which we are happy to extend to the UN Secretariat and to UN Technical Agencies. In most cases, other UN Agencies can use the terms of the Frame Agreement to procure ActivityInfo through a streamlined process. Similar to a Long Term Agreement (LTA), it allows offices to directly raise a Purchase Order for a customized Subscription Plan to ActivityInfo. This makes the procurement process simpler and quicker.
Please keep in mind that the organization you are working with may already have an active subscription with ActivityInfo that you can use directly, so make sure to check with the Global Cluster lead. If you are added to that plan, you will be able to use ActivityInfo without purchasing your own subscription plan. Note that the overall cost of a subscription plan is related to the total number of users under that plan.
