Formative Research for Assisting Behavior Change: A Practical Guide For Field Workers

Behavior change is an inherent part of most humanitarian and development interventions. To improve health outcomes or contribute to nutrition security, most of the time, it is necessary to influence people's behaviors.  This guide is designed for field practitioners designing and implementing projects that assist behavior change.

The methodology can be applied to investigate behaviors linked to nutrition, hygiene, sanitation and water, mental health and care practices, disaster risk management, agriculture, livelihoods, health system strengthening, and even cross-cutting issues like gender.
