Title: Expression of Interest (EOI) - Endline Survey - Knowledge, Attitudes and Practices Study in Nigeria

The overall objective of the IOM X West Africa campaign is to increase social resilience by raising awareness on the risks and dangers of irregular migration, on safe migration alternatives and economic opportunities in the target countries.

The campaign will produce multimedia and multichannel content to increase understanding about the risks of irregular migration and alternatives. Participatory Planning and Capacity Development (PPCD), media camps and focus group discussions will be organized.

As part of the campaign, a baseline study conducted in 2019 established a Knowledge, Attitudes and Practices (KAP) profile of the targeted population of young people aged 13-40 in Oredo and Ikpoba Okha in Benin City, Edo state. The end line study is to be conducted in February 2022 and will evaluate the audience’s level of engagement with the campaign content, as well as the relative impact of the campaign on the KAP levels of the target audience.

  • The objective of the study is to better understand how potential migrants in Nigeria access information about migration (both regular and irregular), how they view safe migration alternatives, and how they conceive their migration decisions. The study will also be used to measure behaviour change in the target audience (Knowledge, attitude and practice) and change in program outcomes at the end line stage.
  • The study will be conducted using the quota sampling methodology where the end-line is conducted at the end of the campaign.
  • Targeted participants in the study are potential migrants aged between 13-40, split between men and women (50/50).
  • The data collection will be conducted through face-to-face interviews and focus group discussions.
