The Suchana program, funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID) and the European Union (EU) and is being implemented by a consortium of partners, including Save the Children, International Development Enterprises (IDE), WorldFish, Helen Keller International (HKI), is a six-year initiative that aims to prevent chronic malnutrition in children in the first 1,000 days of their lives in the districts of Sylhet and Moulvibazar in Sylhet Division. As part of the responsibilities of this bi-annual survey a set of performance indicators was tracked and analyzed biannually to ensure that the program is on course to achieve its objectives.

A key focus of this performance tracking survey is to measure results under the thematic areas of Suchana Pillar 3. The overall objective of the survey is to report results against performance indicators including number of the indicators from Suchana logical framework and generate evidence to create discussion among the consortium to ensure interventions can be re-calibrated as required for maximum impact on the ground. This feedback loop enabled management to ‘course-correct’ from an informed position. The study was conducted using a mixed method approach to gather data on key Suchana activities as well as production, input usage and income.
