Ultimately, the value of any needs assessment lies in whether it leads to action plans for improving and enhancing the organization or group for which it was conducted. In practice this may be more difficult that it would seem. This book takes the reader through a journey of getting results utilized and then evaluating the needs assessment itself. Pitfalls to avoid along the way are thoughtfully illuminated. A major highlight of the text is the "double dozen" techniques that can be used to make the trip a special experience. The text explains where the techniques best fit into making utilization a reality.

What assistance do disaster-affected communities need? This book guides humanitarian field staff in answering this vital question during the early days and weeks following a disaster, when timely and competent assessment is crucial for enabling informed decision making. Needs assessment is essential for program planning, monitoring and evaluation. In an emergency response, however, a quick and simple approach to needs assessment may be the only practical possibility--in other words, it needs to be "good enough". This guide does not explain every activity needed to carry out an assessment, but it describes the assessment process and provides a step-by-step guide through the process. It also contains a number of tools and resources that may be helpful when planning or carrying out humanitarian needs assessments. This guide is essential reading for field staff carrying out assessments after a humanitarian crisis; it should also be read by humanitarian policy makers, students, lecturers and researchers.
