Examples from the Field: Yogyakarta

  • Overview of Activities (Shelter Cluster)
    • Preparation of baseline data – p-codes, populations, demographics, poverty, vulnerability, income level, livelihood information
    • Collection of damage and disaster impact data – government sources, initial assessments, Red Cross
    • Definition of needs – Strategic Advisory Group and Technical Working Groups
    • Collection of agency reports – agency capacity analysis
    • Collating all reports - creation of master spreadsheet
    • Analysing data – through maps and descriptive statistics with reference to needs and damage – gap analysis, predicted coverage
    • Dissemination of information – googlegroup, advocacy to donors, press releases, sitreps, meeting minutes

Emergency Shelter Gap Analysis: Yogyakarta 2006

  • Geospatial maps
  • Descriptive statistics and percentages
  • Gap analysis, predicted coverage with reference to needs, damage and agency capacity

Initial Rapid Assessment (IRA)

Health WASH and Nutrition Tri-Cluster Tool

Status

  • Field tested in six countries
  • Result of field tests positive
  • Always needs country- level adaptation
  • Finalized in April 2008

Next steps

  • To be endorsed by the three clusters by mid-08
  • To be translated into French and Spanish
  • To be widely disseminated and become part of preparedness, perhaps adding additional clusters
  • To be housed and supported for future updates
ira field assessment form infant feeding questions
IRA Field Assessment Form -- Infant Feeding Questions

Overall Ranking: Nutrition (including infant & young child feeding) – RedOrangeGreenwith problems identified with recommendations

Vulnerable groups: Estimated number of infants without mothers (or other longer term primary caregivers) and Information on the situation of these infants

Existing Capacities for infant and young child feeding programs: Organisation or person responsible with -- Normal / current activities -- Limitations to capacity or performance (lack of staff, materials and equipment, funds, access

Food Consumption:Foods (3) currently given to infants <1 year of age

Food Access: Commercial infant formula availability

Key Informant: Main concerns reported by the population (women and caregivers) and by health professionals related to infant and young child feeding

Comprehensive Assessment Tool

Status

  • Project to be launched in 2008 based on IRA
  • Nutrition Cluster focused
  • Aims to create IM system linking existing tools to identify and prioritise needs, gaps and monitor implementation

Next steps

  • To further develop, field test and pilot the system/tool

SMART Standardized Monitoring and Assessment of Relief and Transition

CCCs: Core Commitments for Children

Status

  • Started in 2007 with UN, Cluster and Donor support
  • Focused on Wasting and Mortality with some food security information
  • SMART methodology, software and training and guidance materials updating ongoing

Next steps

  • Rolling out
  • Review of additional information including infant and young child nutrition
other sources mics dhs government agencies ngos
Other sources: MICS, DHS, Government agencies, NGOs
  • Multi Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) Tool for household surveys
  • Developed by UNICEF
  • Can help estimate key indicators, including MDGs
  • Normally used in development settings
  • Has also been used in conflict-affected countries like Sudan
  • Useful for understanding “usual situation” along with Government, DHS, NGO and other sources
observations on information on ife in emergencies
Observations on Information on IFE in Emergencies
  • Information Management key
  • Need standardization on information needs including collation and agreement on indicators, cutoffs, benchmarks, and information systems
  • Assessments need regular reporting not only on key practices but also institutional performance
  • Progress among concerned agencies on measurements and reporting
