Humanitarian programming is mostly designed based on organisations strategic objectives and informed with existing quantitative data. The under representation of bodies for persons with disabilities and older people has led to data gaps, which in turn has led to the exclusion of the most vulnerable from humanitarian programming including vulnerable persons with disabilities and older people. Our project is built on existing evidence and in line with a human rights based approach and localisation, it intends to develop data collection methods and tools to complement the missing data in the national data base and compliment it with improved qualitative data.
Since the inception of the project we have engaged organisations of persons with disabilities (OPDs) and older people’s associations (OPAs) and have emphasized the importance of including persons with disabilities and older people in the design of the data collection tools, taking into consideration the participation of all relevant stakeholders and a conflict sensitive approach. Our approach will provide a new data type, increasing evidence for data-driven inclusive programming and ensuring equitable access to rights at household and community levels.
Our proposed project will innovatively tackle two gaps:
The challenge will provide accessibility solutions to increase the number of persons with disabilities and older people who access the national database and provide new types of qualitative data that demonstrate their needs, requirements, strengths, weaknesses, barriers, challenges, etc. The challenge will come out with two deliverables: (1) A step-by-step guide/manual, inclusive of methods and tools for data collection and innovative data dissemination methods using storytelling, drama, and music, and (2) evidence-based actionable recommendations for humanitarian actors.
The project expects to achieve two outcomes as follows:
Outcome 1: Developed participatory data collection and generation approach, methods and tools co-designed with OPAs and OPDs (Development Phase)
Outcome 2: Improved provision, dissemination and adoption of inclusive community driven data and recommendations of persons with disabilities and older people (Testing and Validation Phase).
