The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) has a Centre for Humanitarian Data in The Hague, the Netherlands to increase the use and impact of data in the humanitarian sector. The vision is to create a future where all people involved in a humanitarian emergency have access to the data they need, when and how they need it, to make responsible and informed decisions.

The Centre focuses on four areas: data services, data policy, data literacy, and network engagement. The Centre’s data services work includes direct management of the Humanitarian Data Exchange (HDX) platform and the Humanitarian Exchange Language (HXL) data standard. For data policy, the Centre develops responsible data guidelines and works with partners on data sharing agreements in crisis settings. The data literacy work involves in-person and remote training programmes for technical and non-technical audiences. Finally, the Centre builds and engages an active community in support of its mission and objectives through a number events and communication activities.

The Centre requires a Data Literacy Team Lead to oversee this workstream. The work includes designing and implementing data literacy activities such as training programmes and workshops with target audiences.
