The earliest decisions that lead to development projects are among
the most critical in determining long-term success. This phase of
project development transforms exciting ideas into project proposals,
setting the stage for a variety of actions that will eventually lead
(if all goes well) to desirable results. From deciding to propose a
sanitation project in South Asia to selecting approaches that
strengthen school management in South America, these decisions are the
starting place of development. This book is your guide to having
assessing needs and then making essential decisions about what to do
Needs assessments support this early phase of project development
with proven approaches for gathering information and making justifiable
decisions. Filled with practical strategies, tools, and guides, you
will find that this book covers both large-scale formal needs
assessments, as well as less-formal assessments that guide daily
decisions. Included in the book is a blend of rigorous methods and
realistic tools that can help you make informed and reasoned decisions.
Use the tools featured in the book to conduct focus groups, develop
surveys, prioritize needs, and lead group decision-making; developing a
comprehensive, yet realistic, approach to identifying needs and
selecting among alternative ways forward.
