with community/tribal elders.

Qualitative instrument includes “Focus Group Discussion” (FGD) and “Direct Observation” (DB), whereas specially designed questionnaire falls under quantitative instruments.

Whereas at village level stratified sampling was used to identify four samples in 27 villages. Stratified sampling involves selecting independent samples from a number of
sub-populations, groups or strata within the population.

With regard to FGDs, a three member team of Lead Facilitator, Assistant Facilitator and Note Taker was formed.Total 3 FGD teams were formed and after proper training they are allowed to conduct FGD at 27 villages where most influx of IDPs resides. At the end of the day, the teams shared their observations. Based on shared observations
