Multi-Cluster Rapid Humanitarian Needs Assessment

The objective of the assessment was to survey at the household and community levels, against a pre-defined questionnaire, the circumstances, needs and priorities of people affected by the floods. As such, this kind of assessment paints a picture of humanitarian needs and gives a voice to those affected by the disaster. This information can be combined with other sources including population projections and historical baseline information to make assumptions of overall needs, but it cannot be statistically extrapolated to arrive at firm numeric conclusions.
