One Ganges project conducted a series of household and water management organization surveys in its coastal Bangladesh study sites. This report presents the methodology and describes the results from the survey. The report can be read as a quantitative situation analysis of the area. Most of the results are desegregated by location for a comparison purpose: comparison between two types of institutions (polders/sub-projects) and comparison between three main geo-hydrologic zones (high, medium and low level of salinity).
The first part of the report focuses on the methodology used for the survey, describing the sampling methodology, the instruments as well as the data collection and data entry processes. Based on the analysis from descriptive statistics, the second part of the report draws the picture of the surveyed areas in terms of poverty levels, domestic and productive water uses, agriculture and aquaculture cropping systems, livelihoods, participation and water management practices. Finally the third part presents the results from the survey conducted with Water Management Organizations, the institutional features, financial features and the activities and perceptions about these groups are analysed.
