Webinar #5 in our Webinar Series on Social and Behaviour Change (SBC) for Improved Agriculture and Nutrition
(learn more about the series here)
The last out of five webinars follows up on the previous webinars that explained how to identify the key barriers and motivators to change, how to design an SBC strategy and how to develop the required SBC messages and materials. The last webinar is designed to help you use your M&E systems to not only measure the results of your SBC programming but also improve its quality and overall impact. You will be able to:
learn how baseline surveys can be used to segment target audiences
see examples of how routine indicator monitoring data can be used to identify programmatic obstacles
learn how to select meaningful SBC indicators
understand qualitative approaches to assess programme performance during implementation and how they can be used to better understand how or why an approach is or is not working
know how endline data can help to explain whether the programme reached the desired outcome and can be used to understand what should be improved upon in future programmes
You can look forward to plenty of practical examples, useful tips and resources that will enable you to apply what you learnt in your work. A substantial portion of the webinar’s time will be allocated to participants’ questions. The speakers include: Leanne Dougherty and Komlan Edan (see their short bios below)
Note: To access this webinar, you will need to register and be logged in to your Zoom account. If you don't have a Zoom account, you can create one here for free.
About our Webinar Series on Social and Behaviour Change (SBC) for Improved Agriculture and Nutrition
(learn more about the series here)
The webinar is part of a webinar series running through the second half of 2020. It aims to help people integrate SBC effectively into each stage of their interventions, especially in the context of agricultural, food security and nutrition projects in low-income countries. Throughout the entire series, experienced SBC practitioners and researchers share useful guidance and inspiration on a range of topics, including:
- SBC essentials
- identification of the key barriers and motivators to change
- design of SBC strategies
- development of effective SBC messages and materials
- effective monitoring and evaluation of SBC interventions
All webinars are in English; however, recordings with French subtitles will be available shortly after each webinar.
The webinars are an excellent opportunity for people to gain comprehensive knowledge, skills and inspiration for facilitating behaviour change in an effective way. Therefore, we encourage you to share this invitation extensively with your M&E colleagues.
