Needs Assessment and Analysis

Author: UN OCHA

Publisher: United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UN OCHA)

A coordinated approach to needs assessments involves humanitarian and, where possible, development actors to plan and carry out needs assessments to avoid duplication, reduce gaps and obtain a stronger overall vision of the crises. Harmonized assessments occur when agencies collect, process and analyse data separate, but where data is sufficiently comparable to be compiled and used in a shared analysis. Joint assessments occur when data collection, processing and analysis form one single processes among agencies within and among clusters/sectors and result in a single report.
