Food Security and Nutrition Network

Behavior Bank

The Food Security and Nutrition Network Behavior Bank features results from Barrier Analysis and Doer/NonDoer Studies conducted by food security and other practitioners globally. (Click here for a description of Barrier Analysis.) You can browse the database by country, region, and behavior studied to look for results for a particular area/behavior, or to look for patterns of barrier and enablers for a particular behavior or set of behaviors. Be sure to hover your cursor over the check marks to see details of the determinants found to be important. You can also hover over the behavior column to read the full text of the behavior. To print or download the data table, first click the Xs in the Hide this Study column to remove studies that you do not wish to see. Then click the button labelled 'CSV' on the bottom of the table, and the results will be downloaded as a excel compatible file (in comma separated values format).

We welcome submissions of new studies from the community of practice. Please remember we are looking for either Barrier Analysis or Doer-NonDoer studies with adequate sample size (at least 30 Doers and 30 NonDoers). To add your studies, please click the Add a Study button below. Guidance on how to add your study are included on that page.

(Please note: If you do not see studies on this page that you expect to see, please refresh your cache by hitting the F5 key on a PC, or Command-Option-E on a Mac, and then reloading the page.)
