Background and introduction
A local organization is looking for enumerators to participate
in data gathering processes that contribute to improving the resilience of
smallholder farmers to climate change in Zimbabwe. The work on this project
will be guided by a three-year project that is being carried out in Gwanda and
Gutu districts, with funding from the Swedish Development Agency (SIDA). The goal of the project is to increase the
capacity of communities, especially women and youth and local level institutions to sustainably use and
manage natural resources.
The local CSO seeks to conduct a baseline study in Gutu and Gwanda
districts. The purpose of the survey is to understand the functionality of
irrigation schemes, productivity and conflict issues. The baseline study will
use a mixed-methods approach that will include the collection of quantitative
and qualitative methods. The study will use a household survey, Focus Group
Discussion (FGD) and Key Informant Interviews (KII). The proposed approaches
allow triangulation of findings and recommendations.
Primary data, both quantitative and qualitative, will be collected for
this baseline, using a structured questionnaire and a semi-structured interview
guide for focus group discussions and an interview guide for Key Informant
