Editor's Notes

  • So what are we trying to do to improve assessments in Kenya?the collective aim of the KIRA is for a coordinated approach to assessments to cover the humanitarian community in Kenya….so that NGOS, UN, government, and donors and have a joint platform to share information, plans, best practice on assessments, reduce duplication of effort, use human and financial resources better, and capitalise on each others’ strengths.The inter sector working group (ISWG) identified a gap in multi sector assessment from the Real Time Evaluation (RTE) of the 2011 Horn of Africa drought. Addressing the gap of multi sector assessments was an agreed area of follow up to the RTE. A project was launched to support the development of a coordinated, multi sector rapid assessment mechanism, and this is how the Kenya Initial Rapid Assessment (KIRA) was born.
  • June to Aug 2012: Consultative phase Sept to Oct 2012: Tool development phaseNov 2012 to March 2013: Roll out phase including training (at least 250 people)April – June 2013: Lessons Learning (10 April workshop, external review) This is the timeline which was originally conceived earlier in the year. Given the elections and the desire to be well prepared, the timeline was very ambitious – hence having strict methodology input and review deadlines, so that we had something to train people in. The good news is that we are pretty much on track!
