Consultancy services for needs assessment

There is currently very limited literature (both grey and academic) published on stakeholder needs assessment for land administration projects. In fact, some have criticised land administration projects for not explicitly including such an assessment in the past. Where such assessments do take place (even anecdotally), feedback has highlighted the difficulty in quantifying these needs into a substantive basis that can inform project or policy decision-making. One of the methodological approaches applied in WP2, the Nominal Group Technique, has proven to be a simple and straightforward method that responds to these gaps by both elucidating qualitative needs and translating these as quantitative outcomes. Thus needs assessments can be offered within a consultancy service to organisations (public / private or NGO) which are embarking on establishing a land administration framework.
