ProblemDFS’ solution
The Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC) collects data from various sources and aggregates them into a series of internal platforms for structuring and verifying the movements of vulnerable populations. Validated data is displayed on IDMC’s website and through the Global Report on Internal Displacement. 
To help users navigate through large amounts of data, IDMC needed to develop an interactive platform that provided easy navigation and access to reports and customized datasets.  
DFS designed and launched the Global Internal Displacement Database (GIDD) for IDMC. 
The platform summarizes all of IDMC’s data since 2008 and allows users to review annual flagship reports and displacement data highlights and maps. DFS developed query builders (conflict & violence and disaster-related) to enable users to explore displacement risk metrics through the Global Displacement Risk Model
