Common Operational Datasets (CODs) are authoritative reference datasets needed to support operations and decision-making for all actors in humanitarian response.  CODs are 'best available' datasets that ensure consistency and simplify the discovery and exchange of key data. There are two types of CODs:

  1. Core CODs (COD-AB, COD-PS, COD-HP), and
  2. Country-specific CODs
