Understanding and influencing local monitors’ behaviour in Nepal and the Democratic Republic of the Congo

Integrity Action have commissioned a number of studies on their Integrity Club model in Nepal and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), looking into effective delivery models and mapping the actors that need to be involved for successful implementation and community buy-in.

This research was designed to complement the 4E approach to understanding and influencing behaviour - enable, encourage, engage and exemplify, with research questions reflecting these themes. Qualitative research was utilised to investigate the motivators and barriers to becoming a monitor, including possible incentives. A literature review enabled the findings from the field to be situated within behaviour change theories, to compare and contrast with similar research and to put the overall work in perspective.
