MapAction’s vision is for humanitarian assistance to be delivered more effectively more quickly. In partnership with others, MapAction is at the heart of the world’s humanitarian response globally, informing the decisions that really matter in major emergencies, with relevant and timely mapped information that will save many more lives and enable communities to become more resilient in the face of further disaster and conflict.

This vision builds on MapAction’s charitable purpose to provide support to decision-making and information management in humanitarian and similar situations anywhere in the world through the application of geospatially-based methods with the aim of preserving life and relieving poverty and suffering. Underpinning this purpose is the presumption that aid can be more effectively delivered if stakeholders share a common spatial analysis of the humanitarian context, the impact of the disaster and priorities for response.
