Large-Scale Surveys PROJECTS
Building Self-Reliance for Refugees and Host Communities by Improved Sustainable Basic Social Service Delivery Program (BSRP) is a UNICEF Ethiopia-led effort to improve service delivery in health, nutrition, WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene), education and child protection. In 2018, Kimetrica carried out a baseline study for BSRP in one camp and the surrounding host community in each refugee-hosting region of Ethiopia -- Berhale (Afar), Tongo (Benishangul Gumuz), Pugnido I (Gambella), Kebrebeyah (Somali) and Adi-Harush (Tigray). The baseline study entailed a quantitative survey of 3,000 households; in-depth interviews with providers at 70 service facilities; key informant interviews with 75 implementers, experts and programme staff; and 40 focus group discussions with community members. UNICEF is using Kimetrica's findings to work externally with local providers and partners, and internally, within UNICEF, to maximize BSRP's effectiveness and efficiency.
