Applicability of Open Source Systems (Ushahidi) for Security Management, Incident and Crisis Mapping: Acción contra el Hambre (ACF-Spain) Case Study

In October 2014, the European Interagency Security Forum (EISF) launched a knowledge hub on communications technology and security risk management. The first publication of this project brought together 17 authors who analysed in 11 articles how communications technology is changing the operational environment, the ways in which communications technology is creating new opportunities for humanitarian agencies to respond to emergencies, and the impact that new programmes have on how we manage security.

In this article, Gonzalo de Palacios analyses the Ushahidi system and its applicability to security risk management, particularly incident and crisis mapping.
