Facilitation Sheet | Community-Based Validation & Prioritisation Using Pairwise Ranking (JIPS, 2022)


Expanding on JIPS’ Joint Analysis Guide and the Technical Brief on Joint Structured Analysis Techniques (JSAT), this publication provides practical guidance on two joint analysis techniques, validation and pairwise ranking.

These techniques can be used to involve communities in a collaborative data collection and analysis exercise, such as a collaborative profiling or a joint needs assessment. They can help inform the validation of results and ensure they reflect communities’ realities, and outline communities’ priorities based on the evidence.

The guide walks practitioners step-by-step through the process of applying both techniques, including how to prepare and structure a workshop as well as how to document results. It specifically draws on experiences from the community sessions designed and conducted in Sudan as part of the durable solutions analysis implemented under the UN Peacebuilding Fund (PBF).
