Nepal Experiences with Assessments (August 2015)
PDF File Size: 501 KB | Download   
After the 25 April earthquake in Nepal, it was decided early on that there would be no roll-out of a comprehensive, coordinated multi-sectoral assessment. At least 70 agencies, including UN, INGOs, local NGOs, and Government carried out a number of rapid assessments to identify the immediate needs – mostly using mixed methodology focused around key informant interviews and purposive sampling. As the focus of assessment shifts from emergency to early recovery, this document aims to provide an overview of lessons learned while designing and undertaking assessments thus far to inform future assessments in Nepal. This report is based on interviews with 18 individuals from UN agencies and NGOs involved in the assessment process, a desk review of inter-agency lessons learned from assessment reports, and a review of 214 assessments received by the Nepal Earthquake Assessment Unit (AU) in the first three months following the 25 April earthquake.
