Project Design

This field-tested, six-day training curriculum responds to community development managers', program planners' and behavior change officers’ need for a practical behavioral framework that helps them with developing effective behavior change strategies in the fields of agriculture, Natural Resource Management (NRM), health, and nutrition.

CORE Group's research library is a searchable list of state-of-the-art tools, curriculums and technical resources covering multiple focus areas including Social and Behavior Change (SBC), FP, social accountability, general health and nutrition. The library was produced with multiple partner and member organizations.

This guide is for program managers and planners conducting a Maternal and Child Health and Nutrition (MCHN) assessment to investigate intra-household roles and influence. The Focus Families and Culture (FFC) guide introduces a holistic framework that can assist program staff to more effectively identify key priority groups for interventions. After learning about the development and key concepts and the methodology. The guide also includes a step-by-step review of the assessment process, complete with case examples, sample tools and diagrams.

This Care Group repository contains information, presentations, tools, curricula, and results reports regarding Care Group programs. The guides review how care groups are formed, how care groups are used to reduce child deaths and results from using various Care Group models.

The purpose of the manual is to provide basic, easy to use, and quick information across the range of topics that organizations need to be familiar with at different stages of a PHE program cycle. This manual drew on member experience with designing and implementing Population, Health and Environment (PHE) projects/programs. The manual was established in response to member and partner demands for information to help PHE practitioners implement project activities. 

The Health of People and the Environment in the Lake Victoria Basin (HoPE-LVB) toolkit is a collection of resources that was developed to promote “a complete status of well-being” of individuals and families by converging activities related to the three sectors of population, health and environment." The HoPE-LVB toolkit was created using the lessons learned and best practices from the project. 

This Guide was designed for facilitators/trainers who work with Nongovernmental Organizations (NGOs) implementing Population, Health and Environment (PHE) activities to develop a Behavior Change Communication (BCC) intervention that supports the achievement of the PHE project’s goals and objectives. It instructs the facilitator on how to train participants on the basic components of a BCC intervention. It also advises how to adapt these components for PHE projects that need integrated messages to raise community awareness of the PHE linkages of health and pro-conservation behaviors. 

The guide is a training curriculum that builds skills to plan and carry out a Barrier Analysis survey. The hands-on learning exercises help learners answer the most common and frequently perplexing questions that arise during implementation. Topics including sampling, interviewing techniques, coding, tabulation and data use are discussed throughout the training. The manual uses a step-by-step approach starting with the definition of the behavior to be studied and development of the Barrier Analysis questionnaire.

This manual provides guidance for field-based conservation practitioners in developing countries on integrating health and family planning into community conservation projects. It is designed for those who are starting work in a new area as well as those who might be adding on a health or population component to an existing conservation project. In addition, some sections are likely to be of interest to health partners, development organizations and donors.
