The study is a key report that put disaggregated data on the table. It provides information on the collection and use of sex and age disaggregated data (SADD), as well as gender and generational analyses of SADD. It is intended to inform assessment processes by humanitarian actors responding to natural disasters and situations of armed conflict.
The research builds on the reflection that humanitarian aid isn’t adequately evidence driven, and observes weaknesses in data collection, analysis and response in all stages of a crisis or emergency. It recognises that it was necessary to collect disaggregated information in order to better understand and more effectively respond to vulnerabilities, needs and access to life-saving services of relevant population groups.
JIPS contributed its expertise and experiences, specifically from using relevant methodologies and working with disaggregated data in various displacement profiling exercises.
