Status: Published 30 August 2016 - 30 September 2016
Funded
Methodology: Data collection started, widgets.needs_assessment.status.5
Methodology description: The research will involve desk-based research and qualitative fieldwork. Phase 1 will consist of the mapping of social protection and humanitarian assistance programmes. This will be done through a desk review of existing reports and documentation and key informant interviews with government officials and NGO and development partner staff. We will then use the information compiled for the mapping to select one specific intervention to look at as a specific case study, using the selection criteria below. Phase 2 will consist of qualitative fieldwork with beneficiaries and some non-beneficiaries, which will explore the barriers for accessing services and whether/ how participation in the programme has enabled beneficiaries to overcome some of these barriers. The fieldwork will be conducted in partnership with Aya Consulting, in two urban, non-camp locations: one in Amman Governorate, one in Ibid Governorate. The fieldwork will consist of in-depth interviews and focus group discussions. It will commence in September 2016 and will last approximately one month. The information gathered in Phase 1 and the analysis of the interviews conducted in Phase 2 will be pulled together in a report and two related briefings.
