In mid-2017 the Inter Agency Common Feedback Project (CFP) won a grant from the UN Development Operations Coordination Office (DOCO). The purpose of this grant was to build on the humanitarian work the CFP has been doing around community voice and accountability, and pilot its approach in a development context. Specifically, the purpose of this project was to capture the feedback from the least developed communities on their priorities around the four themes of the 2018-2022 UN Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF).
Without knowing or understanding the perspectives and priorities of the most vulnerable people, we cannot ensure programming is effective or appreciated. By taking the voices of communities into account from the outset of the new UNDAF period, the development sector can ensure it is designing programmes that fill the gaps expressly identified by those in need of support.
This report presents the results of an 1800 respondent community perception survey, conducted in October 2017 in Kailali, Achham, Bajura, Mugu, Dailekh, Rukum, Mahottari, Sarlahi and Rautahat around the themes of Sustainable and Inclusive Economic Growth, Social Development, Resilience, Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation and Governance and Rule of Law.
