Updated on May 21, 2011: Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre iDMC.
We are pleased to announce that the Global IDP Project of the Norwegian Refugee Council has changed its name to Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC). The name change is accompanied by a relaunch of the IDMC’s website and its online IDP database. Please go to the Homepage to visit the new website and the IDP database.
New name: We believe our new name better reflects the main focus of our work: monitoring situations of internal displacement, advocating for solutions to the plight of the world’s 25 million internally displaced people, and strengthening the capacity of actors on the ground to improve their responses to IDP crises. The Centre continues to be an integral part of the Norwegian Refugee Council and its mandate remains unchanged.
Improved website: The IDMC’s new website provides free and easy access to comprehensive and frequently updated information and analysis on all situations of conflict-induced internal displacement worldwide. The new inter-active IDP map opens an additional gateway to the over 50 country pages currently featured on the IDMC’s website. Each country page serves as a portal to a host of IDP-related reports, news, maps and other resources. Several thematic resource pages are also available on the new website.
Re-register now: As part of the relaunch, we are updating our distribution lists. If you would like to continue to receive the bi-weekly IDP News Alert or e-mail notifications of new IDMC reports and profile updates, please re-register now on our subscription page.
