Overcoming the Challenges to Sharing Information
Across multiple crises and interventions in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Haiti, the USG and NGO communities have improved processes for managing inter-community interaction by developing guidelines to define when and where cooperation is possible. These guidelines enable cooperation while protecting both groups’ independence and security. What are the characteristics of a data-sharing process that would enable cooperative planning while securely maintaining executional autonomy?
