The beneficiary baseline survey was implemented in the frame of the development of small scale vegetable production units in camps.
- Methodology of the survey
The post-harvest assessment was conducted during 3 weeks in November and December 2011 by SI field team, composed by one Food Security supervisor and 3 field agents. The data collection was done through structured questionnaires at household level (See Annex 1), focus group discussions, direct observation as well as a rapid and small-scale market survey.
The project area is an estuarine basin of the Irrawaddy delta covered with a number of rivulets, creeks, canals and mangrove forests. Nutrient rich brackish water fluctuates twice daily, assorted species of fish, prawn, shrimps and crabs are in abundance seasonally. Both inland and estuarine fishery activities have been well practiced in the delta with the exception of the spawning season particularly in the premonsoon period.
