Feedback from migrants in transit in Burkina Faso and Niger
Together with the British Red Cross (BRC) we are developing a feedback mechanism to gauge the perceptions of the affected populations targeted by the Action for Migrants: Route Based Assistance (AMiRA) programme. The AMiRA programme is being implemented by the British Red Cross in collaboration with Partner and Host National Societies along major Western, Northern, and Eastern African migratory routes.
The British Red Cross designed the feedback mechanism using a toolkit Ground Truth Solutions developed in cooperation with the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC). We are supporting the BRC in the adaptation of this mechanism, as well as strengthening the capacity of the Burkinabe and Nigerien National Societies to successfully implement it.
The mechanism has three primary goals:
- Adaptation: It provides National Societies with a steady stream of data, enabling the improvement of programming based on the perceptions of affected populations on the move.
- Learning: The data collected will allow the National Societies to consistently track their progress on the programme’s learning questions, focusing on issues such as how to target vulnerable populations or how to guarantee access to services along the route.
- Accountability: The data collected will constitute a vital component of both listening to the programme’s target populations and in formal reporting, with perceptual indicators having been built into programme monitoring and reporting.
Ground Truth Solutions will lastly produce an overall report with relevant guidance and materials that will enable the feedback mechanism to assist National Societies both within and outside the AMiRA programme.
