Data protection in humanitarian response

This guide is designed to complement existing publications that detail how to do data collection, supplementing it by incorporating protection considerations.

It offers guidelines to ensure that the collection of data performed in a humanitarian setting is socially valuable, participants are treated fairly and with dignity, and the participants’ interests are protected. These guidelines are essential when dealing with vulnerable populations such as internally displaced persons (IDPs) and refugees, who often lack effective protection from their state.
