KAP Survey: Knowledge, Attitudes & Practices in Gender-Sensitive Climate Change Adaptation Programs

Dear Colleague:
We are writing to ask for your participation in a survey that aims to assess the knowledge, attitudes, and practices of key NGOs and government agencies working in the areas of climate change adaptation and climate risk management in Africa south of the Sahara. In particular, we hope to determine the extent to which organizations have the resources and tools they need to ensure that the design, implementation, and monitoring and evaluation of climate change adaptation programs are gender-sensitive. We hope that this assessment will enable IFPRI and other research organizations to develop research products that better meet the needs of agencies implementing climate change adaptation programs. The survey is part of a project that is conducted by the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) with support from the CGIAR Program on Climate Change Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) and the UK Department for International Development (DfID).

We are interested in learning about your experiences and your views towards planning, implementing, monitoring, and evaluating gender-sensitive climate change adaptation projects and programs. Your responses will be treated confidentially and will remain anonymous. We will be happy to share the survey results and other outputs of the project with you.

Finally, we would like to do an in-depth assessment with 5-7 development agencies that work with climate change adaptation projects based on stated need. If you are interested in participating in this activity, please fill the appropriate box in the online tool. Your results will still be treated confidentially in the assessment.

The survey will take approximately 20 minutes and is divided into 5 parts. Even if you cannot answer all the questions in the survey, we encourage you to fill in as much as you possibly can.

If you have any questions about the survey and its intended use, please contact Elizabeth Bryan at e.bryan@cgiar.org

Thank you for your willingness to participate.
