Knowledge, Attitudes and Practices (KAP) Baseline Survey


Cambodia. Location within country: Kampong Thom, Pursat, Siem Reap and Battambang

Project Description

The Rice Fields Fisheries Phase II (RFF-II) project is part of the Feed the Future Cambodia program, and is led by WorldFish with the support of USAID and its partner NGOs. RFF-II supports farmers/rice field fisheries in increasing sustainable production, food and nutritional security in the four provinces within USAID’s Zone of Influence (Pursat, Battambang, Siem Reap and Kampong Thom). Project activities include a Social Behavior Change Communication (SBCC), with a particular focus on improving agriculture, nutrition and WASH behaviors for households with young children. The objective of this KAP baseline survey is to assess the current knowledge about, attitudes towards, and practice of key dietary and WASH behaviors for target beneficiaries within the RFF-II Zone of Influence.

Angkor Research staff conducted the research design, sampling methodology, instrument design and translation, data collection/oversight, and data entry and cleaning services for this survey with 756 eligible households in 36 villages of the 4 targeted provinces (Battambang, Siem Reap, Pursat and Kampong Thom). To strengthen and illuminate the findings from this quantitative component, Angkor Research also conducted 4 focus group discussions.
