The objective of the KAP study is twofold:
(a) To define the basic information needs for key target groups (women, youth, and people with disabilities in 13 districts); and
(b) To articulate a series of public information activities and products to meet these needs, proposing the most effective channels and media for their dissemination.
A number of important surveys have been conducted over the past ten months and a meta-analysis of these studies can be used to generate a series of hypotheses about people’s need for information about the constitution/making process, and the most effective information/education/communication activities, products and channels that could be used to meet these needs. These hypotheses can be tested through a series of Focus Groups Discussions (FGDs) in each of the three regions with women, youth and people with disabilities
The FGDs will assess current levels of knowledge and understanding about democratic processes, attitudes towards and practices of political and social participation and involvement in development initiatives, as well as media consumption trends and communication channels for women, youth, and people with disabilities. It will draw on and extend previous research and provide a prescription for IEC activities to be supported by UNDP during the coming months. The outcome will provide specific guidance for the design of information, education and communication products to be used in the run up to the election to establish the National Public Congress.
