Introduction & Methodology
Given the rapidly changing operational context, OCHA developed a Rapid Capacity Survey in August 2021 with the aim of quantifying the impact of the conflict on humanitarian reach and activities, the risks facing humanitarian personnel, and to collect information on enabling conditions for the resumption of activities. The survey asked organisations (UN and NGO; national and international) to report on the estimated percentage of programming that has been suspended/hibernated, where, and in which sector due to the conflict. The first round of the survey is accessible here. While the majority of the survey questions remain the same, for the second iteration of the survey partners were also asked to respond to questions on issues related to female staff policies, procurement, salary payments, operational costs, banking, and other operational constraints. Partners submitted their inputs to the survey between 9 and 16 September 2021. Considering the fluidity of the context on the political, financial and security fronts, this summary report may or may not reflect partners’ current capacity.
The survey was available in English, Dari and Pashto. The survey was completely anonymous and confidential and partners had the option to skip any questions that they did not want to respond to. The survey also consisted of multi-choice options where partners were given the opportunity to submit several answers. To prevent duplicated submissions and ensure quality data collection, partners were asked to nominate one person per organisation to respond to the survey
