This technical brief document produced by ACAPSintends to act as a starting point for improving coordinated needs assessments in urban areas.
Without coordinated need assessment, humanitarian communities will not have the possibility of ensuring the quality and accountability of urban response. The document targets this issue by providing guidance on carrying out joint rapid assessments of humanitarian needs in urban environments within the first weeks of a disaster. Organisations can then use this brief to both ensure that joint assessments are carried out appropriately in urban areas, and as a tool for updating their own assessment practice.
