What is DEEP?
The tool is a global free data entry and exploration platform (DEEP) that offers a plethora of tools and collaborative workflows, which allow users to compile, store and structure data and qualitative information in humanitarian contexts. The secretariat is hosted by the Danish Refugee Council, and is developed and maintained by Data Friendly Space - DEEP’s principal technology partner. It was initially established in the aftermath of the Nepal Earthquake to strengthen collective analysis. In the past, DRC have used the DEEP platform to share information on a global level, however through this project, the DRC office in Latin America wishes to implement DEEP to improve protection analysis by piloting its use in Colombia and the region at large.
The overall aim is to use The DEEP platform as boost for better evidence-based protection programming across LAC, setting a potential example to follow for other regional contexts affected by displacement.
