Over the past ten years, the humanitarian community has made significant efforts in approaching needs assessment and analysis. Under the Grand Bargain on Needs Assessments Workstream, a wide range of partners have come together and committed to improving cross-sectoral, methodologically sound and impartial assessments, including through shared and comparable data. Despite initiatives that demonstrate progress towards improving joint needs assessment and analysis practices, effective operationalization of such practices and initiatives in support of strategic decision-making remains limited. With such limitations, well informed and properly coordinated humanitarian responses remain difficult. Additionally, the data deluge faced by humanitarian analysts presented by large volumes and complexities of secondary data, make timely and accurate analysis difficult.
DEEP is an online platform which meets the need for common means to compile, store, interpret and share data and information, applying cutting-edge technologies and analytical workflows. The platform allows for analysts to ingest data of interest in both qualitative and quantitative formats then structure and analyze it in common analytical frameworks. DEEP was first initiated in 2015 and has gained significant momentum in the past couple of years. The platform has been used to support joint analysis in multiple humanitarian contexts, including sudden-onset emergencies in Mozambique, complex emergencies (Libya, Nigeria, Yemen) and more recent mixed flows, such as the Venezuela situation (Project R4V). In these countries, the DEEP has proven its value by directly informing Flash Appeals, Emergency Plans for Refugees and Migrants, Cluster/NGO Strategies and Humanitarian Needs Overviews.
