On 21st and 22nd October 2009 UNU-EHS held a training course on interview techniques and the conduction of questionnaire-based surveys. The course aimed in particular at training the interviewers participating in the upcoming household survey in Can Tho in the framework of the vulnerability assessment within WISDOM. This survey will focus on vulnerabilities, coping and adaptive capacity with respect to present and future water-related hazards in the urban and peri-urban districts Ninh Kieu, Cai Rang and Binh Thuy.
15 staff members and master students of the Mekong Delta Development Research Institute (MDI) and the College of Environment and Natural Resources – both at Can Tho University – participated in the training. Furthermore, a selection of staff members will receive training in data processing with SPSS-software and in GPS related data management.
