As the conflict in Eastern Ukraine is into its fourth year, ongoing and widespread ceasefire violations along the ‘line of contact’ and the restrictions on movement of people and goods continue to pose significant risks to civilian populations in Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts. 2017 and 2018 saw the conflict intensify, leading to a significant loss of lives, major concerns over the protection of civilians and significant damage to critical infrastructure. Overall, 3.4 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance and protection .
It is therefore necessary to update the previous multi-sector needs assessment reports (IAVA, Trend Analysis, Winter Assessment) with a new and relevant data, and further investigate the trends of the changing humanitarian situation on the ground through both secondary data review from other humanitarian actors, as well as primary field collection of data to fill the gaps identified in the humanitarian data available.
General Objective To understand and track changes in humanitarian needs of populations living in conflict affected areas in government controlled areas of Ukraine.
Face-to-face interviews with Head of Househould or Household representative.
Stratified cluster sampling were applied with stratification for 8 areas: 5km/5-20km/+20km; Rural/Urban 100,000
Confidence level – 95%. Margin of error – 7%.
Once data collection is completed, data is translated, cleaned, and prepared for analysis.
