MIS
UNHCR introduced a new biometric information management system (BIMS) and the global distribution tool (GDT) which is now jointly used in all distributions, thus reducing the duration of the distribution process while producing valuable sex-age disaggregated data (SADD). In rural areas, given its alignment to the national social protection agenda, WFP focused primarily on the progressive biometric enrolment of the majority of its General Food Distributions (GFD) beneficiaries on the national social registry, the main platform containing the beneficiary-related data owned by the Government.
