Determine the indicator's value by using the following methodology:
1) Define what can count as “were consulted about their needs”. This can include, for example, participants of a qualitative needs assessment and respondents of a quantitative survey that assessed people’s needs and the preferred aid modalities. It should include only those activities whose outputs were used for designing a new intervention.
2) Conduct key informant interviews (e.g. with MEAL staff or a programme manager) and review relevant documents (e.g. reports, attendance sheets) to count the number of people that were consulted about their needs.
3) The indicator’s value equals to the total number of people who were consulted in line with the criteria defined in point 1).
