Hurricane response in the Caribbean

Tracking the perceptions of people affected by Hurricanes Irma and Maria

As part of the H2H Network, Ground Truth Solutions is providing humanitarian actors and government agencies in the Caribbean with the means to systematically listen, react, and respond to the views of people affected by Hurricanes Irma and Maria. The H2H network is a group of not-for-profit organisations that provide products and services to other humanitarian organisations, to improve the effectiveness of emergency response and facilitate two-way communication with affected populations.

Through a series of surveys in Dominica, Antigua and Barbuda, Ground Truth Solutions will provide a regular flow of feedback to key actors on community perceptions of their evolving needs and the effectiveness of the response. This will allow decision-makers to better understand community concerns, manage expectations, and make adjustments to the response. With the assistance of H2H Network member organisations, Ground Truth Solutions will also communicate the results of data collection to affected people, using multiple channels such as SMS, Facebook and other social media platforms, and community meetings.
