JIAF 2.0 Overview
Joint and Intersectoral Analysis Framework version 2.0: Updated methods, tools, and processes for humanitarian needs analysis

In the complex field of humanitarian needs analysis, how can we measure and understand ‘needs’ in a more people-centered way? To help address this and lay the groundwork for a joined-up and evidence-based approach to humanitarian response among different actors, the Joint and Intersectoral Analysis Framework (JIAF) was recently revised.

JIAF version 2.0 sets global standards for the estimation and analysis of humanitarian needs and protection risks. The JIAF analysis provides the foundational information for Humanitarian Needs Overviews (HNOs) that are conducted globally on an annual basis, estimating the magnitude and severity of humanitarian needs and exploring the drivers, linkages, and intersections of sector-specific needs.

Building on learning from the JIAF 1, version 2.0 has been developed by a partnership that includes some of the largest donors, UN agencies, NGOs and global clusters, and specialized agencies under the auspices of Grand Bargain and will be rolled out for the first time in the Humanitarian Program Cycle 2024.

We are pleased to invite you to a webinar on 7 June (15:00-16:30 CEST), where we will be introducing the revised methodology of the JIAF 2.0 for conducting joint and intersectoral needs analysis within the humanitarian program cycle.

We warmly extend the invitation to all practitioners, noting that the session will be most relevant for OCHA and Cluster Information Management Officers (IMOs), Coordinators, Program staff, specialized assessment partners, and anyone involved in the humanitarian program cycle.

The presentation will be in English, with simultaneous interpretation in French and Spanish.
