Abstract This paper presents a use case of mobile network data as a new source of insight for humanitarian action. Based on analysis covering the Republic of Vanuatu, we identify aggregate behavioral patterns indicating short term and medium term behavior changes as a result of a tropical cyclone, which could contribute to our understanding of the resilience of communities to natural hazards. We also find interesting behavioral insights on how the human movement network is impacted by a cyclone. Due to the detail and tractability of the data set, insights on preparation, displacement, damage and resilience could enable more agile and adaptive responses by public institutions and other actors to humanitarian emergencies. Considering the array of natural hazards that the South Pacific region faces on an annual basis, this use case contributes more evidence in favor of using anonymized mobile network data to inform humanitarian action.
