Tracking the use, uptake and conditions for sustainability of communication products.
This report results from a tracking survey of the distribution, use and potential uptake of communication products from four NRSP projects in Kenya and Uganda to a variety of stakeholders and target institutions. Although still preliminary, the report brings out the key issues and stakeholder assessment of the usefulness of the different products, and strategies for promoting their uptake and sustainability. The rest of the report is divided in three main sections. Section 2 describes the methodology of the survey, target institutions and content of the checklist. Section 3 presents the results of the study by profiling the target institutions and analysing the distribution of the products. It then investigates stakeholders' perception of the usefulness of the different products and modifications that need to be made to make the products more useful to the end users. The sections that follow examine uptake promotion pathways, the expected impacts of the different products, and the conditions for sustainability. The concluding section of the report presents a set of lessons and recommendations that can be derived from this study.
