|Post date||Tuesday, 28 February, 2017 - 10:25|
These guidelines are intended to provide users with theoretical and practical skills to enable them to: (i) understand the different needs assessment phases and their principles; (ii) conduct or participate in the coordination and implementation of the different phases; and (iii) recognize available tools for conducting multisector/interagency assessments and in-depth sectoral needs assessments. It is structured around the five pre- and post-crisis needs assessment phases presented in the Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) Operational Guidance for Coordinated Assessments in Humanitarian Crises. It consists of four sections: Section 1 introduces the reader to the phased assessment framework, including its main components and principles, and provides an overview of the global Food Security Cluster output indicators. Section 2 presents the five specific phases of the framework in detail to provide a foundation for participating in or conducting phase-specific assessments. Section 3 presents two sets of additional tools – those for more in-depth and sector-specific assessments, and surveys designed with other objectives and for other specific needs assessments.
