Niger Secondary Data Review released, Joint Needs Assessment planned
Published on 15 November 2011
ACAPS, in collaboration with ECB Agencies, have released the Secondary Data Review for Niger.
This report coincides with the harvest season in Niger, which should be the most food secure time for the country with high levels of food availability nationwide.
However, early predictions indicate that close to three million people are at risk of food insecurity due to production shortfalls in 2011/2012, predominantly in the two regions of Tillabery and Tahoua. Niamey, the capital, is based in Tillabery and it is here that there are particular concerns about the urban poor.
All six ECB agencies in Niger will be involved in a Joint Needs Assesment (JNA) which will also include government staff and UN agencies.
11 September 2013: The Evolution of a Joint Needs Assessment Approach in Indonesia
The consortium of agencies in Indonesia, working together as part of the Emergency Capacity Building (ECB) Project, carried out their first joint needs assessment (JNA) in conjunction with the Government of Indonesia and the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA) Country Team, in early 2007, when extensive flooding affected Central and Eastern Java. During this process a single common data collection form was conceived of and used by a number of agencies. In March 2007 consortium members came together again to conduct an initial rapid assessment following an earthquake in West Sumatra. The benefits of this experience demonstrated the value of joint assessments and set in motion the development of a formal JNA tool, along with an associated database to facilitate collation and rapid dissemination of needs assessment information.
