Introduction to Humanitarian Needs Assessments and Analysis


November 2021

CAS: Foundations of Humanitarian Action

The course aims to introduce participants to processes, skills and knowledge required to design and implement Asessment and Analysis (A&A) processes and make sense of available information in humanitarian emergencies. Therefore, it relies on the broad experience of ACAPS using guidance from ACAPS Technical Briefs and the Humanitarian Needs Assessment – The Good Enough Guide (GEGA) as backdrops. The pedagogical approach will follow a mixture of introductory presentations and group work, using virtual break out rooms, shared folders, etc.
