Tool

The Guidance for the KII Assessment Tool for Community Members Engaged in Fishing and Farming are combined in one tool and are found by clicking the link HERE.


1. KII for Community Members/Farming

Objective

The KII will gather individual-level data on the effect of disasters and CCA on agriculture. Interviews should be conducted one-on-one.

Guidance

A. KII Selection: The assessment team can ask community leaders to help identify participants who fit the criteria, but community leaders should not participate in the interview. You can also identify respondents during the transect walk.

Respondents should fit the following criteria:

    • Personally engaged in farming
    • Small-scale farmer or producer
    • At least 1 respondent should be a woman
    • At least 2 respondents/community should also be engaged in household gardening
    • At least 1 respondent/community should be from vulnerable groups
    • Respondent should not have participated in the FDG on DRR/CCA

B. Before Starting the Interview: Please, explain to the respondent that CRS is conducting this study to understand deeper about the recent disaster impact on people’s lives and livelihoods and the existing response system that the communities have.  The purpose of this study is to help us develop a project proposal.  CRS cannot commit that another new project will come up soon in this area, nor than the KI will be a beneficiary of the program in case there is any. 

ASK: “Do you have any questions? Do you want to be interviewed?”  If yes, then proceed. If no, thank the participant.
