The United Nations World Food Program (WFP) in Cambodia has leveraged the latest technologies to develop new approaches to information management and to the functioning of WFP’s programmes.
Platforms for Real-Time Information Systems (PRISM) is a project that aims to integrate these approaches and technologies into government information systems, with the goal being to transform routine government information and reporting streams into real-time, actionable platforms for decision-making.
The core objective of PRISM is to integrate government information flows and display this information in real-time in an interactive, user-friendly geographic platform (linked across ministries), informing development activities and emergency response decisions as well as facilitating implementation of social protection programmes.
Within the PRISM project, WFP is currently working with the Primary Education Department (PED) of the Ministry of Education Youth and Sports (MoEYS) and the National Emergency Control Centre (NECC) of National Centre for Disaster Management (NCDM).
InSTEDD iLab SEA supported WFP Cambodia in customizing our open source platform “Resource Map” and “Verboice” to facilitate the creation of integrated real-time information systems within NCDM and MoEYS.
