Project description

In order to ascertain the perception of native tribesmen and women regarding the quality and pace of development initiatives by the government in their respective areas, BEFARe launched survey in February 2008 and completed the FATA Baseline and Perception Survey in all the seven tribal agencies and six FRs successfully in October 2008. The survey was conducted to observe the perception of tribesmen and women vis-à-vis their development on behalf of government of Pakistan. BEFARe male and female surveyors implemented individual and group questionnaires across 35 villages in each tribal agency and 10 villages in an FR. A total of 12502 questionnaires were filled during the survey in a span of nine months with 156 enumerators participating in the survey.BEFARe gender-balanced teams implemented survey across tribal belt except in Bajaur, North and South Waziristan agencies, where female surveyors were replaced with male members to avoid backlash from extremists. The teams had requested to drop females as their movement for survey was virtually impossible in respective agencies
