The Centre is based in the Netherlands and is part of the OCHA office located in The Hague Humanity Hub. We have a globally distributed team with personnel working across six continents and 19 countries. Team members in Bangkok, Dakar, Geneva, Nairobi and New York work in the OCHA offices in those locations. 

The Centre’s proximity to humanitarian operations makes our products and services more tangible to partners and provides an opportunity to connect experts in the academic or scientific community with field staff. Team members in Dakar and Nairobi have mainly been focused on the data partnerships work of HDX but more recently, we have added data science capacity in Nairobi and data responsibility capacity in Dakar to deepen our engagement for these workstreams.
