WASH needs assessment for Hajjah, Amran, Al Hudaydah and Raymah Governorates

Subject/Objective: 
Aims to provide an overview of the situation in order to identify the immediate impacts, make initial estimates of the needs of the affected population for assistance, and define the priorities for humanitarian action. It should also identify aspects on which more detailed follow-on assessments should focus.
Methodology: 
In sample design, two main criteria are used for selecting the sites: focus on areas of greatest needs and coverage of a range of locations qualitatively representative of the affected population. An intercluster priority rating developed by OCHA in consultation with the lifesaving sectors like WASH , Nutrition, Health and food were used to identify the targeted areas and population. These areas fall within 28 districts distributed in four governorates, namely: Al Hudaydah, Hajjah, Amran and Raymah. To conduct key informant interview and focus group discussions (group of men and group of women) at a village level, stratified one- stage- cluster sample was designed for the selection of 198 villages. The sample of villages in each district was drawn using a probability proportional to size (PPS) sampling.
