About REACH REACH is a joint initiative of two international non-governmental organizations - ACTED and IMPACT Initiatives and the UN Operational Satellite Applications Programme (UNOSAT). REACH’s mission is to strengthen evidencebased decision making by aid actors through efficient data collection, management and analysis before, during and after an emergency. By doing so, REACH contributes to ensuring that communities affected by emergencies receive the support they need. All REACH activities are conducted in support to and within the framework of interagency aid coordination mechanisms. For more information please visit our website: www.reach-initiative.org.
