Humanitarian Booking Platform

Last updated: 06 Oct 2022

Overview

IOM has signed an agreement with the World Food Programme (WFP) to join its web-based platform, Humanitarian Booking Platform. This is an inter-agency initiative, with participation of WFP, UNHCR, UNICEF and now IOM, and offers an interface for offering and booking accommodations in field locations, as well as for other services such as booking UNHAS flights and booking appointments at UN Clinics (depending on targeted country operations). 

This agreement allows IOM to post IOM-managed accommodations on the website (humanitarian hub, guesthouses, etc.) and mention the services available (catering, leisure rooms, etc.) as well as conditions under which these accommodation can be reserved by any humanitarian workers (e.g. price, payment modalities, etc.). 

The platform also offers various management tools, such as real-time reports and analysis on occupancy and running costs of each location. The cost of participation in the platform is sponsored by DOE for 2019, and there is no cost for missions to use the services of the platform. 

IOM personnel may also find and reserve their accommodation for their duty travel on this website, based on the photos, prices and other information provided for each guesthouse.
