Concept note template

Last updated:

An assessment concept note is developed in the early stages of conceptualizing an assessment exercise. The concept note facilitates a common understanding and agreement between UNHCR colleagues, and potential partners, regarding any planned or scoped assessment exercise. The Concept Note has two functions:

  1. Clarify the assessment exercise objective
  • Define the objective of the assessment exercise, ensuring alignment with partners.
  • Determine the value and benefits that the exercise will bring.
  1. Facilitate the decision-making processes
  • Facilitate discussions on whether or not to initiate the assessment exercise.
  • Determine whether it will be implemented by UNHCR and partners or outsourced.

A more detailed Methodology Outline is developed following endorsement of the Concept Note by relevant stakeholders.
