Lessons Learned Research: Livelihood Sector, COVID-19 Situational Analysis Project   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Introduction: "In July 2020, iMMAP [Information Management & Mine Action Programs] and DFS [Data Friendly Space] initiated the 'COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] Situational Analysis project' funded by the BHA [Bureau of Humanitarian Assistance] of USAID [U.S. Agency for International Development]. The project provided a solution to the growing global need for information, assessment and analysis among humanitarian stakeholders. The project team was working towards strengthening the information flow available to the humanitarian actors to enable humanitarian organizations to better respond to the COVID-19 pandemic with focus on Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Colombia, DRC [Democratic Republic of the Congo], Nigeria and Syria. During 2020, iMMAP teams have collected and aggregated and synthesized data from different sources to produce monthly situational analysis reports. The monthly reports were widely utilized and facilitated a better understanding of the humanitarian impact of COVID-19, and support partners in planning and targeting response operations amid the global crisis. [...] The aim of the research was to come up with recommendations based on best practices that could be implemented in various contexts, especially countries of focus. In addition, cross learning between countries would also help in improving the data availability and quality resulting in effective and efficient response to COVID-19 and policy formulation for similar pandemics in future. The research through review of secondary information and KIIs [key informant interviews] addressed the following research questions: [1] What has been the availability of data to the livelihoods Sector/ Cluster and how has this changed relative to pre-COVID-19? [2] What has been the quality of data available to the livelihoods Sector/ Cluster and how has this changed relative to pre-COVID-19? [3] What challenges have the Sector/ Cluster faced throughout the COVID-19 pandemic? [4] How has the livelihoods sector/cluster adapted to continue to provide services and support during COVID-19? What Lessons Learned are available to the livelihoods sector/Cluster[?] How will COVID-19 affect ways of working moving forward?"
