This interagency assessment includes four components of data collection and analysis. First, there are the secondary data sources of governments and agencies. Second, there are the primary data collection tools that serve as the backbone of the assessment. Thirdly, remote sensing analysis was done by UNOSAT in each of the target locations. And finally, there is the GIS and mapping component of all the aforementioned data collected, collated and analyzed.
Drawing on background information from a secondary data review conducted by the assessment team in Nairobi, the intercluster assessment engaged shelter and WASH cluster member agencies in Doolow to conduct primary data collection.
Three tools were used during the primary data collection phase: (1) a household survey questionnaire; (2) direct observation and (3) a settlement asset survey conducted using mobile phones. Enumerators hired by the shelter cluster members present in Doolow and trained by REACH collected primary data using these three tools.
