Amplifying Burkinabés' views of the humanitarian and COVID-19 responses

Source: UNHCR
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 (CEA) 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 Burkinabé. Accordingly, we will conduct four survey rounds.
The first round will collect affected people's perceptions of the current aid they receive, which will provide humanitarian teams with a deeper understanding of how aid is or is not meeting the needs of these affected populations. The second through fourth rounds will focus specifically on affected people's perceptions of the COVID-19 response they have received to date. By producing quick and timely analysis and reports, we aim for affected people's feedback to directly inform the ongoing COVID-19 mitigation and response measures, so these efforts can align with the needs voiced by Burkinabé.
