ABSTRACT

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

From the Introduction: "This research has involved a range of actors within the humanitarian sector, starting with the iMMAP [Information Management & Mine Action Programs] analysts located in the six countries of study and the WASH [water, sanitation and hygiene] officers of INGOs, who were able to collect primary data directly from the field. The team leader and the staff also collected information for iMMAPs monthly Situation Analysis Reports, including all the sectors and many other observations within the different countries. The six countries that were targeted for this research are Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Colombia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo [DRC], Nigeria, and Syria. This study aims to identify the best practices to collect information in crises such as the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic. The best way to avoid the problems raised by the pandemic is to learn from mistakes and replicate their successes. Key informants provided valuable information on the lessons learned on data collection during COVID-19. These lessons range from the very first part of a project cycle (proposal and development phase) until the final evaluation of projects and the interaction and coordination mechanisms between different humanitarian WASH actors, sectors, and national and local authorities. It is also exciting to see how new technologies support data collection in all the countries and how the community-perceptions approach utilized by OXFAM in DRC, Burkina Faso, Syria, and Action Contre la Faim in Nigeria has proved to be successful."
