When an emergency unfolds, collecting information on the needs of the affected population is a crucial step for quickly orienting the response and mobilizing the resources.

Simple instructions for collecting the information and completing the situation report can be downloaded as a separate document, as well as the most common reference values useful for interpreting the findings.
