Needs assessment for refugee emergencies (NARE)

The NARE highlights information that is derived from pre-crisis and post-crisis secondary data analysis before primary data collection begins. For primary data collection, the NARE suggests data elements that may be derived from facility visits, observations, key informants and focus group discussions. It promotes the cross-analysis of information derived from multiple methodologies across multiple sectors to ensure a rapid, relatively complete picture of needs in a refugee emergency. The NARE assessment is intended to be a one-off activity and not an ongoing monitoring system.
