Knowledge Management

This guidance outlines key steps for analysing risks and determining the most likely evolution of the humanitarian situation when developing an HNO. The analytical outputs should help to plan for the most likely scenario in the foreseeable future and inform the response analysis and targeting steps in the HRP. This note complements the HPC step-by-step guidance and HNO annotated template (Chapter II) and is based on a review of existing practice and policy.

This document provides practical guidance for information management officers and designers on how to populate and adapt the Humanitarian Needs Overview (HNO) and the Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP) templates for the 2021 Humanitarian Programme Cycle.
It should be consulted in conjuction with the rest of the package: the InDesign and Illustrator templates and assets, the annotated templates and the step-by-step guide. 

As also recognized in the Global Humanitarian Response Plan (GHRP) COVID-19, persons with disabilities are at heightened risk of contracting and developing a severe case of COVID-19 and facing indirect health impacts. They are also disproportionately affected by the socio-economic impacts of COVID-19 and measures to control the pandemic. These negative impacts are exacerbated in humanitarian contexts.

This document provides an overview of what information to present and how to do so in the development of the Humanitarian Needs Overview.  It should be read alongside the:


The HPC Step-by-Step re-asserts the sequence of the needs analysis and planning, with needs analysis directly informing the decision-making with regards to response, whether for the preparation of new plans or adjustments to existing ones.  At both the analysis and planning stages, it emphasizes commitments made at the World Humanitarian Summit and the Grand Bargain;
The JIAF Guidance supports and guides the work of experts (information managers, analysts, etc.), in-country Intercluster Coordination Groups and decision-makers involved in joint needs analysis. It outlines an analytical framework for inter-sectoral analysis – the Joint Inter-sectoral Analysis Framework (JIAF) – assisting with the identification of inter-linkages between various drivers, underlying and contributing factors, sectors and humanitarian conditions
