Webinar – Harmonization of COVID-19 phone surveys in CGIAR
Webinar organized by the Socio-Economic Data Community of Practice of the CGIAR Platform for Big Data in Agriculture.
Many CGIAR initiatives are planning to conduct phone surveys to understand the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on agri-food systems. With travel bans and lockdowns around the globe, these phone surveys, also known as CATI (Computer-Assisted Telephone Interviewing), are expected to play an increasingly important role in agricultural research for development and policy decisions.
This webinar explores the Centers’ phone survey approaches and discuss the opportunity and feasibility of harmonization across COVID-19 phone surveys to collectively create a large survey database as a global public good.
