April 2013 Programme and Response Analysis Workshop Windsor Hotel Nairobi, Kenya April 29 to May 1, 2013
April 2013 A suggested Framework Begin with a simple conceptual model 3 main problems: Continuity (between situation analysis and planning) Consensus (relief/development; government/non-government; different sectors) Alignment (which changing livelihoods) The suggested framework has 3 main components: Population of Concern Critical Pathways Planning
April 2013 Component 1: Population of Concern People Focused Planning? Identify your area of analysis – and the clients who your planning serves Step 1Unit of Analysis (i.e. district, county) Step 2Population of Concern – it will depend on why you are tasked to support the planning Broad Groups: livelihood group, age group, sex, flood affected, drought affected, etc Step 3 Disaggregate Broad Groups (age, wealth group, sex, others?) – groups are not homogenous Identify the future state, objective or vision for the target population Step 1What is the long-term vision for this population group or sub- groups of this group?
April 2013 Component 2: Pathways Strategic analysis of moving from the current to the future? Identify potential pathways that connect the current state of the population of concern to the desired future state Step 1What are different pathways so that they can realise that vision? Step 2Prioritise: Of those different pathways, are some better than others? Are some more practical, greater benefit? Within those pathways maybe there are common elements for several of them? Conduct critical analysis of those pathways to understand the opportunities and challenges of each pathway Step 1Refer to previous critical pathway analyses or problem tree, objective tree, VCA, CBDRR etc or similar analysis to understand why the population of concern is in their current condition, what constraints or threats they will encounter on their pathway, how they will be overcome. If none has been done, do one. Identify critical elements (success or challenges) of the pathway which will form the intervention points of the plan Step 1Re-analyse the pathway to identify critical success factors and critical threats Step 2What are options for interventions to enable either the success of a critical factor or which can reduce the negative impact of a threat?
April 2013 Component 3: Plans Good plans built on broad input, experience but also need a common focus – at which point does response analysis pass the baton to the operational planners? Generate short and long-term options – addressing critical success factors and challenges – with the input of from a wide range of expertise and experience Step 1Review critical factors and options with others (sectors, experience, etc.) to get a broad perspective on how to best ensure the success of that pathway, prioritise options – and to increase consensus. Rank those options against a criteria (congruence with pathway analysis, existing plans/policies, current activities) Step 1Review experiences – why hasn’t this been done in the past? What has worked? What hasn’t worked? What’s actually made an impact? Step 2Review existing plans policies/priorities etc – to find existing actions, plans, activities which could be linked to the population of concern Outline a plan – which can be further developed within operational or contingency planning structures Step 1Hand over this planning outline to those directly involved in the planning process for detailed examination, input, guidance, etc.
