Document typeCase study
In February and March 2014, Oxfam carried out field research in the Philippines with people displaced by typhoon Haiyan in order to inform and influence the government-led process for their relocation. The project tested a cyclical research process – including an innovative digital survey – in order to make timely use of the findings in programming and advocacy; to ensure better sharing with other actors and the authorities; and to feedback to affected communities. This paper reviews the methodology used and presents key learnings and conclusions that can be used to strengthen future studies.
The original briefing paper which documents the survey results and provides recommendations for the Philippines government, the international community and civil society is ‘The Right Move? Ensuring durable relocation after typhoon Haiyan’
