Conducting a ‘people-centered’ holistic analysis of the most vulnerable populations

The Joint Intersectoral Analysis Framework (JIAF) provides country teams and humanitarian partners with a common method, process and tool to conduct an analysis of the most vulnerable populations, where they are, the combination of needs they face, and their severity. The JIAF brings together humanitarian actors across all sectors to develop a common integrated analysis of inter-linkages between various drivers of needs, and their underlying and contributing factors, to inform Humanitarian Needs Overviews and subsequent Humanitarian Response Plans.

This rigorous analysis of who is being left behind and why is also informative for peace and development actors, and in many countries JIAF outputs are already being used as the basis of linked humanitarian and development plans and responses.  The JIAF outputs enable donors to prioritize financial resources to populations and localities where intersectoral needs are the most severe.
