Afghanistan: Joint Rapid Assessment Guidance Note [EN/Dari]


In an increasingly complex operating environment, stronger coordination around humanitarian needs assessments is critical to enable effective assessment of multi-dimensional needs; optimise available resources (including use of trained enumerators); reduce the burden on key informants; and capitalise on a sometimes brief window of access. Under the direction of the humanitarian leadership group and the Humanitarian Country Team (HCT), members of the Inter-Cluster Coordination Team (ICCT) and Humanitarian Access Group (HAG) were tasked with developing a joint assessment form and guidance note to support effective coordination for inter-agency joint rapid needs assessments. 
This guidance note identifies enabling conditions, shares best practices and overarching guiding principles for joint rapid needs assessments.
