Primary Outcomes (end points)
Measurements include multiple sources of data: survey questions and behavioral measures based on SMS technology. The in-depth household survey questionnaire is divided into four parts. The first part includes detailed questions about the household’s composition, economic status, access to public services and financial instruments, flooding experience and trust. The second part is the video and the third part includes detailed questions about risk awareness, worry, preparedness, risk and time preferences. The final part of the questionnaire is the behavioral experiment.
The chief survey questionnaire excludes the first part, since the necessary context variables such as demographic characteristics and flooding experience are collected during a mapping exercise that precedes these surveys. The chief survey questions mostly differ from the household survey since they are focused on the block in general, not necessarily the chief’s household. Nonetheless, the same topics are covered.
The short survey includes questions from across most in-depth household survey sections. Some questions are asked before and others after showing the video. Additionally, it includes questions to determine the respondent's exposure to spillovers.
The survey measures are supplemented with a behavioral measures through SMS. After the survey, the respondents receive two different invitations through text messages. The first invitation, offers some useful information about the cyclone warning system currently active in Quelimane. Respondents have to reply ‘yes’ to receive the information. The second invitation asks respondents to send anonymous feedback and suggestions about disaster risk management to the local government.
The primary outcomes are survey questions on 1) risk awareness, 2) risk worry and 3) preparation intention, and the behavioral measure through SMS.
