The Data Entry and Exploration Platform (DEEP) is an open-source inter-agency initiative offering a structured way to compile, process, store and share qualitative data and information for use in humanitarian and development needs analysis, while encouraging collaboration and transparency.
As part of the Grand Bargain Needs Assessments workstream, ECHO and OCHA in collaboration with the World Bank convened a Workshop on 21-22 May 2019 with the workstream partners to discuss experiences with joint humanitarian-development-peace needs assessments and analysis, identify factors enabling success, challenges, and steps that could be taken to strengthen joint analysis.

These tools and guidance, when accompanied by sufficient and appropriate capacity, will contribute to advancing coordinated needs assessment and analysis through the Grand Bargain. The documents include:1. The Grand Bargain Principles for Collaborative Needs Assessment Ethos2. Quality criteria for multi sectoral needs assessments and analysis
