Quickly collecting reliable information in a humanitarian crisis – especially following a natural disaster such as a large earthquake or a typhoon taking place in a poor country – is the critical link to saving the lives of the most vulnerable. Understanding the population’s needs is often neglected for lack of quick means to gather and analyse crucial information. 

KoBoToolbox addresses this. It has been developed by the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative and is an open source suite of tools for data collection and analysis in humanitarian emergencies and other challenging environments. It is funded entirely through generous grants and donations from its partners.
