  • Criteria for conducting assessment: MIRA will be triggered by IASC/MoHA when external assistance required to support national efforts. Initial data consolidated… Proposed assessment locations: Determine scope and scale… Preliminary information from phase 1 (i.e. GoN, NRCS, local police, some field visit reports) will complete this process. Call on established MIRA Roster Members: Once MIRA triggered the assessment teams from the MIRA roster assembled and a plan of action developed based on phase 1 information. Proposed Team: WFP/IASC to train the assessment team. The team should ideally be composed of individuals representative of clusters and a range of originations - GoN, UN, I/NGO, and Red Cross. Timing: Flexible between 48 hrs to 10-14 days (phase 2) Coordination of logistic arrangement: On behalf of IASC, OCHA. MIRA coordination of teams and data collection: On behalf of IASC, WFP to lead the process Analysis: WFP to coordinate with respective cluster leads and field experts for initial quantitative analysis and cluster review. Preliminary Report Dissemination: If not the final version, preliminary report to be shared with wider humanitarian responders through different coordination mechanisms.

  • 1.
    • IASC Nepal
    Government of Nepal / Inter Agency Standing Committee IASC Multi-Cluster Initial Rapid Assessment (MIRA) in Nepal
  • 2. MIRA Background:
    • In April 2008 initial draft MIRA developed at IM workshop of IASC
    • In 2008 & 2009: MIRA adapted in the context on 6 different occasions:
    • August 2008 - Few partners used the MIRA in the Koshi floods (before IASC adaptation).
    • September 2008 the IASC adapted the MIRA to the Koshi IDP camp environment and conducted an assessment lead by WFP with core group of responders from Sunsari/Saptari.
    • September 2008 - Floods hit Far Western Region the MIRA tool was used in its original format by joint GoN /IASC teams.
    • November 2008 - MIRA was adapted for the initial return assessment conducted by GoN, local NGOs and IASC.
  • 3. MIRA Background:
    • In 2009…
    • In March of 2009 the core indicators were used to assess Sunsari flood-affected settlements in areas of return,
    • and more recently the core indicators of the MIRA have been adapted by WFP to assess drought-affected communities in Western Nepal.
    • MIRA Challenges experienced:
      • Processing of data: Trained standby roster of emergency responders trained in MIRA which can be immediately deployed
  • 4. Local Adaptation in Nepal: Local Adaptation
  • 5. As shown a IASC workshop on IRA, 2008 April :

  • 9. Assessment sequence and MIRA is Nothing New:
      • 2006, 2007, 2008 MIRA implemented 2-5 weeks following disaster
      • Each of these MIRA based on initial data from the field (NRCS, DDRC, NA, INGOs, UN ) that helped identify areas to be assessed.
    • However with formalized MIRA now …..
      • More predictability
      • More accountability
  • 10. What Global and Nepal experience show – Need for FLEXIBILITY Flexible to enable its use across contexts. Sampling methodology is not precisely pre-defined and depends on context of the emergency and prevailing situation regarding access, security, funding and assessment time frame. Assessment sites: focus on areas of greatest needs and coverage of a range of locations qualitatively representative of the affected population. Establish a categorisation according to geographical areas, ethnic groups and gender differences, which means the diversity of the situation is taken into consideration for the interview site selection
  • 11. Criteria for implementing MIRA: MIRA will be triggered by IASC/MoHA when external assistance required to support national efforts in an emergency. Initial data consolidated… Proposed assessment locations: Determine scope and scale… Preliminary information from phase 1 (i.e. GoN, NRCS, local police, some field visit reports) will complete this process. Call on established MIRA Roster Members: Once MIRA triggered the assessment teams from the MIRA roster assembled and a plan of action developed based on phase 1 information. Proposed Team: WFP/IASC to train the assessment team. The team should ideally be composed of individuals representative of clusters and a range of originations - GoN, UN, I/NGO, and Red Cross. Timing: Flexible between 48 hrs to 10-14 days (phase 2) Coordination of logistic arrangement: On behalf of IASC, OCHA. MIRA coordination of teams and data collection: On behalf of IASC, WFP to lead the process Analysis: WFP to coordinate with respective cluster leads and field experts for initial quantitative analysis and cluster review. Preliminary Report Dissemination: If not the final version, preliminary report to be shared with wider humanitarian responders through different coordination mechanisms.
