Participatory Assessment

Status: widgets.needs_assessment.status.4 1 December 2012 - 1 December 2012
Not funded
Methodology: widgets.needs_assessment.status.2
Methodology description: Semi-Structured Interviews; applied in focus group discussions on a few key topics with groups separated by age and gender, and more in depth key informant interviews with persons directly engaged in the situation, for example community leaders and Govt officials. The Participatory Assessment’s Task Force developed one check list to structure focus group discussions and key informants interviews around key questions regarding copying mechanisms, protection space and urgent and medium term needs. Efforts were made to include team members with varying levels of experience, so that more experienced staff can support less experienced staff in conducting the assessment. Each of the 11 groups consisted of 3 members i.e. 33 persons, at least one of whom was a UNHCR staff member. Teams consisted of UNHCR and partner agency staff. Each team was responsible for conducting at least 3 FGDs, which resulted in a total of 39 focus group discussions with about 500 Syrian refugees participating over the period of two weeks.
Sampling: widgets.needs_assessment.sampling.4
Sampling size: FGD (39); separate male, female, and youth and adults
Target population: widgets.needs_assessment.target_population.6, widgets.needs_assessment.target_population.7, widgets.needs_assessment.target_population.8
