TITLE: Enhancing Humanitarian Effectiveness through Technology, Lebanon

About the project

We (Medair) are an international humanitarian aid agency that relieves human suffering in some of the world’s most remote and devastated places. We recently established a ground-breaking partnership with Qlik, an international Business Intelligence software company.

This collaboration achieved a significant, large-scale, positive impact on thousands of Syrian refugees’ lives in Lebanon through our “Bekaa Valley Humanitarian Effectiveness project”. This project improved humanitarian assistance for refugees in the Bekaa Valley through increased speed, scale and scope of intervention. It located settlements more precisely and identified their specific needs more accurately than had been possible beforehand.
