Number and Percentage of population with access to basic community infrastructure not covered by other sectors or clusters, e.g. police stations, town halls, administrative buildings. Schools (if not covered by Edu), playgrounds, parks

The types of basic community infrastructure that is covered by the Early Recovery cluster will be decided in-country by the relevant cluster coordinators.  The accessibility of ER structures must then be estimated: access in disasters can be limited by the damage or destruction of a structure; by damage or destruction of the transport networks servicing the structure; or by insecurity, for example.

These different grounds have to have access to services such a women friendly police stations, girls friendly schools, or those that have mobility access routes.

General guidance: 
Standards and local customs to be defined according to context. Basic community infrastructure are small scale, low cost, and community self-constructed basic infrastructure, technical facilities and systems to ensure basic services and thus are critical for sustenance of lives and livelihood of the population. Access refers to populations ability to make use of or take advantage of basic infrastructure. Types of basic community infrastructure are locally determined, usually include but not limited to community access roads, small drainage and water structures, socio-economic infrastructures, communication and early warning, community non-conventional energy plants, and community small and micro enterprises. Recovery of basic community infrastructure should be guided by the participation and insights of the affected communities. The process should use labour-intensive technologies particular attention should be given to ensure that future disaster risks and minimised during recovery. The extent of damage may suitably be categorized as minor damage, partial damage and complete damage with the understanding that minor damage can be repaired with little efforts by the community themselves. In the absence of a country-wide established method, cross-sectoral and community consultation will be needed to draw a balanced perspective in devising a method of estimation for people's access with data disaggregated for each type of basic community infrastructure.
Guidance on phases: 
Phase 1: Identify and assess the type and the extent of damages of the basic community infrastructure and their distribution in the affected communities. The sources of information are likely to be different for each type of basic community infrastructure and it is also important to determine the number of population served in the community by an affected basic infrastructure of each type. Determine the number or persons affected by the crisis ? refer to the common parameter (common dataset) adopted by the Humanitarian Country Team. Analyse the impacts in the lives and livelihoods of community population and determine the numbers and types of basic community infrastructure for which repair and reconstruction are critically important for livelihood recovery of the community population. Assess spontaneous responses of the affected communities and identify if emergency response actions include a component of restoration of basic community infrastructure. Phase 2: Verify the information about the types and number of basic infrastructure to improve the data disaggregation. Determine the number of population having access to basic infrastructure; Phase 3: Verify and update the numbers and types of basic community infrastructure based on the available report of comprehensive joint assessment such as PDNA. Improve the precision by documenting population's access to different types of basic infrastructure; Phase 4: Conduct in depth analysis of the basic community infrastructure

Guidance for pre-crisis/baseline: 
Secondary data from National Statistical offices, special reports, report on community resources and risk mapping from local institutions, NGOs and Community Based Organisations. Statistical techniques may require to be applied for necessary extrapolation in preparing the baseline data.
