Guidelines for assessment in emergencies
About this resource
Assessment is a vital element of the programme planning process.
It provides the information on which decisions will be made.
Whilst good information does not guarantee a good programme,
These guidelines provide advice on how to carry out an assessment.
The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement
(the Movement) is involved in a wide variety of situations. Each
assessment is different, reflecting this diversity. These guidelines
do not explain every activity for every assessment. They do,
however, provide a framework within which an assessment can be
organized. By working through the guidelines, you should be able
to cover all the main issues required for a successful assessment.
