During the first year, the project had two launch workshop in Nairobi (Kenya) and Dar es Salaam (Tanzania), hosted by the respective partners (University of Nairobi and Mzumbe University in Dar). The workshops were attended by researchers, policy-makers, providers of social protection (both private and public), civil society organisations and beneficiaries of social protection.
Representatives from all three sectors covered by the project (construction, micro trade and transport) participated, and the workshop created a platform for these to discuss the content of the project idea. Moreover, the events provided an opportunity for the participants to share views and experiences in relation to social protection from both a supply and demand side. The outcomes of the workshops helped to feed into the development and fine-tuning of the main survey questionnaire, focus-group discussion tools and interview guides for key informants across all three sectors. During the second half of 2018 and most of 2019, extensive fieldwork was carried out in both Kenya (Nairobi and Kisumu) and Tanzania (Dar and Dodoma). In April 2019 the project team met in Nairobi to discuss the data gathering process, initial empirical findings and the next steps, including writing-up a series of working papers to be brought out as CAE working papers.
