Following the widespread flooding and devastation caused by the heavy monsoon rains in Pakistan in 2010, six international NGO's - Action Against Hunger (ACF), Care International, Concern Worldwide, International Rescue Committee (IRC), Oxfam GB, and Save the Children - formed a consortium to undertake the large-scale early recovery program. This £20 million Emergency Food Security and Livelihood (EFSL) program, funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID), provided basic income support and income generation opportunities to help the most vulnerable households begin restoring their livelihoods and communities. The services provided by the firm were part of the final evaluation of the program.
The services provided by the firm included data collection (both qualitative and quantitative) and data entry for CBHA final evaluation. The data was used by the international consultants who evaluated the program. Sampling methodology was designed by international consultants in consultation with APEX. Our firm conducted 800 beneficiary household interviews in Punjab and Sindh, 20 key informant interviews (KII), and 24 Focus Group Discussions (FGDs) with beneficiaries based on the tools prepared in consultation with international consultants. Data editing was done by professional researchers and data was entered in Census Survey Program (CSPro). After data entry frequency tables were generated for cleaning. Data analysis was done using statistical package SPSS and clean data set was submitted to the client as the end product.
