Behaviour Change Needs Assessment

There are many things that have an impact on human behaviour and trying to change behaviour is a complex task. This tool aims to help your program with its formative research by defining the behaviour it wants to change and supporting the program team to gather information that will help to deepen understanding of the target population and the context in which the behaviour takes place. This tool should be used in conjunction with other instruments such as PESTLE analysis, Capacity Needs analysis, WASH Community Needs analysis and desk review. This is part of CAWST's Household Water Treatment and Safe Storage Program Design Online Workshop
