This case study is part of an initiative to produce evidence-informed guidance for operational agencies on strengthening the effectiveness of feedback mechanisms for affected populations in humanitarian contexts.

This is the second in a series of three case studies leading to a synthesis report and a guidance document on effective humanitarian feedback mechanisms. The Pakistan field visit was conducted between January 7 and 18, 2013, and was hosted by the International Organization for Migration (IOM). This case study primarily focuses on feedback processes within IOM’s shelter programme and by extension, the feedback loops within the Shelter Cluster led by IOM. Interviews were conducted with IOM programme staff, Shelter Cluster Focal Points, and IOM’s implementing partners (IPs) in Islamabad, North Sindh, and South Sindh provinces, where IOM is providing assistance in flood-affected communities.

Launched at ALNAP’s 29th Annual Meeting: Engagement of Crisis-Affected People in Humanitarian Action.
