About the DHN

The purpose of the Digital Humanitarian Network (DHN) is to leverage digital volunteers in support of 21st century humanitarian response. More specifically, the aim of this network-of-networks is to form a consortium of Volunteer & Technical Communities (V&TCs) and to provide an interface between formal, professional humanitarian organizations and informal yet skilled-and-agile volunteer & technical networks. Services offered by members of the DHNetwork are listedin the DHN Catalogue. We are taking an iterative approach in developing this interface and will expand membership to this network over time. Membership is by organization only

The purpose of the DHN Coordinators is to review activation-requests and rapidly liaise with the different volunteer & technical teams who are members of the DHN to build a Solution Team best able to act on a request. The Coordinators aim to provide a response to every request within 24 hours.
