CFP: Reconstruction and Food Security and Livelihood Report - August 2018

The objective of the CFP is to ensure that the voices of affected people systematically feed into humanitarian response and recovery, to contribute to a more effective and responsive recovery effort. It provides support to the entire UN Country Team and HCT, including all clusters and organizations, government, donors, development partners, as well as civil society and other actors, in order to help them understand the issues of affected communities in real time, and consequently adapt policies and programmes to strengthen the effectiveness of recovery work to the specific circumstances and concerns of communities, as well as improve communications with affected people.

Community Perception Report: Reconstruction, Food Security & Livelihood and Protection - May 2018

The Inter-Agency Common Feedback Project, referred to as the Common Feedback Project (CFP), is an innovative community engagement project, initiated during the response to the Nepal Earthquake 2015. It is funded by UK Aid, and is based in the UN Resident Coordinator’s Office, enabling a strategic connection with humanitarian response and recovery.The CFP is designed to help the humanitarian and recovery community understand the perceptions of affected people relating to services, people’s sense of agency, outcomes and the quality of relations between aid providers and the affected population. It is a common service to humanitarian partners to collect, aggregate, analyse and elevate feedback from disaster affected communities through a variety of sources, including: community perception surveys, focus group discussions and aggregation of feedback 3W from partner organizations

Flood Perception Survey- Round III

To carry out the Flood Perception Survey, 30 trained enumerators are deployed throughout the ten most heavily flood affected districts to collect data over the course of 10 days from a total of 1800 respondents using a probability proportionate to size (PPS) methodology. All data collection is completed with mobile tablets using KoBo Toolbox. The top ten districts were selected based on damage data released by the Ministry of Home Affairs (MoHA) on 31 August 2017. The total affected population of each district was used to proportionally distribute the sample of 1800 among the affected districts.

Community Perceptions on Development Objectives

In mid-2017 the Inter Agency Common Feedback Project (CFP) won a grant from the UN Development Operations Coordination Office (DOCO). The purpose of this grant was to build on the humanitarian work the CFP has been doing around community voice and accountability, and pilot its approach in a development context. Specifically, the purpose of this project was to capture the feedback from the least developed communities on their priorities around the four themes of the 2018-2022 UN Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF).

Flood Perception Survey February 2018

In December 2017, the Inter-Agency Common Feedback Project completed 1800 Community Perception Surveys at the household level with community members randomly selected throughout 10 priority flood affected districts. This was the second round of data collected in flood affected districts. Among the 1800 respondents, 69 percent said they were affected by the floods, and an additional 25 percent were minorly impacted by the floods. The five percent who claimed not to be affected by the floods at all were excluded from further analysis. Among those who were affected, the most significant impacts were in livestock shelter damage (57 percent), household asset loss (43 percent), food/grain storage loss (42 percent) and household damage (42 percent). This clearly illustrates that the main impacts of the floods were not necessarily in the housing sector. Therefore, categorizing flood affected people, and their entitlements, based on house status, as was done in the approach to earthquake recovery, may not be the most appropriate strategy.
