This document provides guidelines for creating emergency assessments. Assessment is a vital element of the programme-planning process. Assessment provides the information on which decisions will be made. Whilst good information does not guarantee a good programme, poor information almost certainly guarantees a bad one. The use of a standard methodology means that information can be compared with data collected during previous assessments. Included in the document are sections outlining and explaining the following areas: key concepts, planning an assessment, office-based tasks, fieldwork, analysis, and composition of the final assessment report.
