Twenty to thirty million people are displaced every year by natural disasters.
During large disasters and crises there is a severe lack of basic information on the locations of affected people.
This prevents relief organisations from delivering the right amounts of supplies to the right places, even when sufficient resources are available.
Flowminder researchers pioneered the use of de-identified data from mobile operators to follow population displacement during the 2010 Haiti earthquake response.
