Information Management across the Danish Refugee Council (DRC) is crucial to ensuring that the data we collect can be turned into information, and personal and institutional knowledge that informs and strengthens how we provide support to the communities we work with. This Learning brief has been developed to correspond with the IMS Learning Report which provides substantive insights and further use case examples on IMS phases and processes. The information used to develop this learning report was based on a series of four technical discussions hosted by the MEAL team over the course of October 2020 and included participation from colleagues at HQ, Regional and Country Office level, who represented core areas of the organisation, including, Global IT, Global Protection, MEAL and Information Management.    The aim of the Learning brief is to clearly articulate a number of key challenges encountered in setting up IM(S)ystems within DRC and also a substantive number of opportunities identified by colleagues at HQ, Regional and Country Office level to support your operations IMS journey.  Towards the end of the brief are a number of resources maintained by DRC HQ colleagues have been listed to encourage further collaboration on Information Management systems.
