To provide a complete understanding of the situation and needs of people affected by a crisis
Needs assessment is essential for program planning, monitoring and evaluation, and accountability. However, needs assessment is still a critical weakness of humanitarian response.
Coordinating needs assessments is important to provide a complete understanding of the situation and needs of people affected by a crisis. They give the necessary evidence-base to design and implement responses that save lives and restore people’s livelihoods. Supported by emergency preparedness, timely and quality assessments help build an effective humanitarian response.
At Spirit we provide coordinated assessment which consists either of a single assessment exercise including various sectors, or of the combination of various sectoral assessments analyzed together. Coordinated assessments are planned and carried out by Spirit in partnership with other humanitarian actors and they form the basis for needs-based strategic planning and system-wide monitoring, and constitute the first phase of the Humanitarian Program Cycle.
