Humanitarian needs and response analysis is a collective process through which the Humanitarian Country Team (HCT) identifies humanitarian needs of affected populations and develops plans and mobilizes resources to respond to the most pressing ones on the ground.
IASC members and partners coordinate efforts to prepare, manage and deliver an effective humanitarian response through coordinating needs assessments and analysis to obtain a detailed vision of the humanitarian situation and needs. Likewise, they collectively undertake response analysis to prioritize and respond to acute and severe needs. Throughout the cycle, IASC partners monitor humanitarian needs and adjust collective and individual efforts accordingly.
IASC guidance to support field-level coordination and IASC members throughout the humanitarian programme cycle (HPC) is available here.
