Knowledge, Attitude and Practices Evaluation of a Multisectoral programme, ACF Democratic Republic of Congo

A knowledge, attitude and practices (KAP) evaluation of Action Against Hunger DRC’s Resilience, Food Security and Nutrition project in Ituri province (in French, Projet de résilience à la sécurité alimentaire et nutritionnelle dans la province d’Ituri).

This evaluation sought to determine baseline KAP values of the programme’s target population in regards to the intervention’s key sectors of FSL, WASH, nutrition and health. The main objectives of the evaluation were:

  1. To establish a baseline of the knowledge, attitudes and practices of the target population
  2. To identify the information needs and barriers behaviour change of the target population
  3. To propose recommendations to reduce potential management weaknesses
  4. To measure values for key indicators in the logical framework



The project began with an exchange with the country office to define the analytical framework and review the indicators selected for validation. The Action Against Hunger DRC team led data collection, including a KAP survey of 274 households and 24 focus group discussions. Data was analysed using Nvivo and Excel, and both quantitative and qualitative findings were triangulated through an in-depth document review. The report was validated and presented to the Action Against Hunger DRC teams in Kinshasa and Ituri.
