The WASH Dry Spell Assessment used mixed methods with the majority of data collection using Key Informant (KIs) interviews at Community Development Councils (CDCs) and informal settlement (ISETs) level. These KIs will consist of knowledgeable community members, such as community leaders, teachers and elders. Following the KI interviews, a round of open-question Focus Group Discussions (FGDs), 2 per each of the 10 provinces, took place in one of the most vulnerable identified districts. These FGDs were used to substantiate quanitative findings.

This assessment focused on 10 provinces found in the North, West, South and Central regions, selected based on the WASH Cluster's prioritisation method. This method consisted of selecting Informal Settlements (ISETs) and Community Development Councils (CDCs) across all districts in the 10 selected provinces, with these provinces chosen as reportedly more than 25% of water sources have already dried or are drying as a result of the 2018 winter dry spell. These provinces were: Daykundi, Faryab, Badghis, Balkh, Farah, Hilmand, Jawzjan, Nimroz, Sari Pul and Uruzgan
