Protection of Productive Assets
English: number or % of households who used one or more of the promoted measures for protecting their productive assets
French: nombre ou % de ménages qui ont utilisé une ou plusieurs des mesures promues pour protéger leurs actifs productifs
Portuguese: número ou % de agregados familiares que utilizaram uma ou mais das medidas promovidas para proteger os seus ativos produtivos
Czech: počet nebo % domácností, které použily jedno nebo více propagovaných opatření k ochraně svých produktivních prostředků
What is its purpose?
The indicator measures the extent to which the target households applied the recommended measures for protecting their productive assets (tools, machinery, animals) against the identified hazards (such as floods, storms, etc.).
How to Collect and Analyse the Required Data
Collect the following data by conducting individual interviews with a representative sample of the target group members:
RECOMMENDED SURVEY QUESTIONS (Q) AND POSSIBLE ANSWERS (A)
Q1: In the past [specify the time period], did you use any of the measures promoted by [specify the agency's name] for protecting you productive assets against [specify the main hazard(s)]?
A1: yes / no
(ask the following question only if the previous answer is YES)
Q2: What kind of measures did you use and for which assets?
A2: specify the asset: ...................... and the measure: .......................
To calculate the indicator's value, divide the number of respondents (households) who reported to use one or more of the promoted measures by the total number of interviewed respondents. Multiply the result by 100 to convert it to a percentage.
1) Discuss with your colleagues and pilot among your target group an appropriate translation of "productive assets", such as "all the things that help you to earn money or get food".
2) If possible, verify through observation whether the measure was really used.
3) BHA phrases this indicator differently, as "number of people whose livelihoods and assets are protected from shocks and stresses".
