The lack of accurate, complete and credible information of the affected population does not just paralyze the ability of the humanitarian community to respond in a timely and effective manner but also affects the ability of the population in need to claim their rights and entitlements. It is for this reason that Information Management Strategy is created. Each sector comprising the entire Whole of Syria coordination structure is confronted with the challenge to strategize information management that would pave the way to understand ground truth and facilitate evidence-based decisions. Given the dynamic situation of the crisis where the life span of an information is too short, is it vital for each sector to maintain an information management system/s that could also keep up with the trend. This Information Management Strategy development must, therefore, be seen as an ongoing and evolving process.
