Joint Needs Assessment (JNA)
It’s a familiar scene for anyone who has worked in an emergency: a host of different agencies all assessing the same communities.
Work is duplicated, data is inaccurate, resources are wasted and there’s no guarantee that the right assistance reaches the right people at the right time.
If agencies can work together to capture the data needed to assess needs it can make a big difference to the quality and effectiveness of humanitarian response to emergencies.
This is where a Joint Needs Assessment (JNA) can be useful.
It is a way of using primary data (that an agency captures itself) and secondary data (from other agencies, the government, research organisations, the UN etc) so that all stakeholders have a shared understanding of the impact of a disaster in the initial days and weeks.
The result is better, faster assessments of humanitarian emergencies and (I)NGO responses.
