Abstract

This protocol is a systematic narration of my fieldwork in Bangladesh for postgraduate
research at the School Social Sciences, University of East London. Main aim of the research is to
investigate crises coping strategies of households and insurance role of microsaving in reducing
vulnerability to poverty in north eastern rural Bangladesh. Underlying research question is: How
do rural people strengthen their capacity against vulnerability and how microsavings contribute in
this process? There are three broad data requirement categories for this question: 1) Vulnerability
to poverty 2) Crises management capacity and 3) Insurance role of microsavings. Data collection
methods are both qualitative and quantitative in nature. Qualitative method uses Participatory
Rapid Appraisal (PRA) and Focus Group Discussion (FGD). Quantitative method employs semistructured
questionnaire and Progress out of Poverty Index (PPI) for each randomly selected
households. The survey was held in two randomly selected villages in north eastern region of
Bangladesh.
