  • The 5Ws tool (Who is Where doing What, When and for Whom) is designed for various purposes to support the information management of the humanitarian response. For the purpose of this exercise, 5Ws is used only for mapping and monitoring the Child Protection and Gender Based Violence interventions and results (outputs).
