HOW TO CONDUCT A VRA

Tasks to prepare for a VRA (allow six weeks)

  • Agree purpose, remit, scale and scope of the VRA
  • Form the dedicated facilitation team
  • Appoint a support team (if helpful!) to arrange workshop logistics
  • Invite the Knowledge Group the participants in the workshop)
  • Compile ‘hazards and issues’ and ‘social groups and livelihoods activities’ longlists using existing information
  • Schedule a run-through the day before to ensure the facilitation team is prepared and you have all the materials you will need.

Knowledge Group members discuss which key ‘hazards and issues’ and ‘social groups and livelihood activities’ will be prioritized in the exercise, grabbing the interest of members from the nearby community in the Upper East region of Ghana, who have gathered round. Photo: Oxfam in Ghana
