Definition - What is it
Response analysis means deciding what to do based on the existing information. The response analysis process will help the organization to determine the livelihood programmatic options that are most appropriate and feasible, given the priority needs of the most vulnerable population.

Logic in the TOOLBOX
It is conducted at the end of the assessment process, in which the affected population’s needs are identified. It will be followed by the set up and implementation module which will start with a review of the response proposed at the end of this module.
It is crucial the link between the tools used in the assessment, response analysis and monitoring and evaluation; therefore the user of the toolbox will have to move back and forward between those modules in order to achieve maximum outcome of the field work done.
