Amplifying affected peoples' views of the humanitarian and COVID-19 responses
With increasing attacks by armed groups, Burkina Faso's heightened insecurity is exacerbating critical humanitarian needs and prompting more Burkinabé to flee their homes. Operating within this context, the humanitarian country team has established the Community Engagement and Accountability Working Group (CEAWG) in order to implement and strengthen accountability practices towards affected people.
Ground Truth Solutions (GTS), in partnership with the H2H network and the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), seeks to support the institutionalisation of collecting affected populations' feedback and developing humanitarian plans centred on the voices of these affected communities.
Our first survey collected affected people's perceptions of the impact of COVID-19 and the corresponding humanitarian response. We aim for affected people's feedback to directly inform the ongoing COVID-19 mitigation and response measures.
Our second survey asked affected communities about their experience with the humanitarian aid they had received over the past six months. This report will be published in November with the aim to support the drafting of the 2021 Humanitarian Response Plan so that affected people's preferences and needs can be integrated into this important planning document for the upcoming year.
