    Shouldn't it be "what those needs are?"?

    I'll meet the family and then we can meet our representatives on the ground and get a good understanding of what are those needs over the next six months.

    Shouldn't it be "what those needs are"?

    Thanks.

    Yes. This is a good example of lazy English. It's the kind of thing a bad TV news reporter would say. (Or, at least, a bad TV reporter here in the U.S!)
