Providing behavioural insight to the United Nations for UN World Food Programme
In 2022, we worked with the World Food Programme’s company headquarters in Rome on a project exploring attitudes and behaviours towards Covid and the Covid vaccination.
We took a three-pronged approach: an academic review, a quantitative study and 12 depth interviews conducted online.
The ongoing pandemic caused us to face a number of limitations. Our fieldwork took place during the Omicron wave, when Covid rates were particularly high throughout Europe. All of our work also had to take place virtually.
This project provided valuable insights for the WFP and continued our working relationship with the organisation.
Since April 2018, Claremont has carried out multiple assignments for the UN World Food Programme including:
- working with the Gender Office to increase understanding across the WFP global workforce of why gender equality matters to their work, and to take action to advance gender equality when designing their programmes;
- working with the Partnerships team to train colleagues on using behavioural communications to develop new relationships;
- working with the Communications directorate to design and deliver a residential behaviour change bootcamp for 25 communications professionals from North Africa and the Middle East.
