The 72-hour assessment approach: a guide for vulnerability and spatial analysis in sudden-onset disasters

Source(s):  World Food Programme (WFP)

This document was developed based on the experience of the VAM Units in WFP Regional Bureaux for Asia and the Pacific and Latin America and the Caribbean, who applied this approach in rapid emergency assessments between 2015-2017. It is designed for professionals and organizations intending to carry out a rapid emergency assessment following a sudden-onset disaster, such as a cyclone, earthquake or flood. With a strong emphasis on data preparedness and other essential organizational readiness actions, the 72-hour assessment approach provides a good enough snapshot to fill the initial information vacuum in the first three days after the disaster, based on the most recent available information and pre-disaster secondary data.

It offers a solid basis to make operational decisions even in extremely challenging and complex situations with information being validated and refined through continuous updates as new data becomes available, from, e.g., field visits, rapid assessments, remote sensing and mobile phone surveys.
