Sa’ada Emergency: Integrated Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Response Baseline Survey


The WaSH Baseline Survey plans to identify IDP and HC challenges with water, sanitation, and hygiene in the four Amran Governorate districts of Amran City, Raidah, Kharif, and Jabel Yezid.
• Assessment of the current water and sanitation situation in target districts to assist in directing program activities.
• Design survey methodology such that monitoring (quantitative and qualitative) is enabled.
• Methodology that can be easily replicated for future monitoring and evaluations, so that genuine comparison in change can be made over time and impact measured.
• Baseline data is achieved from which to measure change/impact in relation to project indicators.


Three tools were used for the Baseline Survey. A HH survey was prepared and pretested for IDP and HC HHs to determine household water and sanitation practices and knowledge. (Refer to Annex 1 for the HH Survey Questionnaire.) The other tools were Focus Group Discussions (FGD) from the four districts (one male and one female FGD per district) and stakeholder interviews with INGOs, NGOs, and government organizations. Interview questions were prepared prior to all interviews.
