RANAS (Risks, Attitudes, Norms, Abilities and Self Regulation) Training Report

Purpose and overview:

This training report detailed the purpose, RANAS methodology, agenda and participant list of the training.

The Risks, Attitudes, Norms, Abilities, and Self-regulation (RANAS) approach to systematic behaviour change is an established method for designing and evaluating behaviour change strategies that target and change the factors influencing a specific behaviour in a specific population. In brief, it is an easily applied method for measuring behavioural factors, assessing their influence on behaviour, designing tailored strategies that change behaviour, and measuring the effectiveness of these. Although it was originally developed to change behaviour in the water, sanitation and hygiene (WaSH) sector in developing countries, it is applicable to a range of behaviours in various settings and populations.

Usage: Guidance for implementation

Methodological Fact Sheets – RANAS (Risks, Attitudes, Norms, Abilities and Self Regulation) approach to systematic behavior change

Purpose:

The methodological fact sheets aim to give practitioners a step-by-step tool to help them when designing an effective behavior change campaign.

Overview:

The 6 methodological fact sheets consist of :

  1. The RANAS approach to systematic behavior change
  2. The RANAS model of behavior change
  3. The RANAS behavioral factors
  4. The RANAS behavior change techniques
  5. Doer/non-doer analysis to specify the critical behavioral factors
  6. Comparing the RANAS approach to systematic behavior change with KAP surveys

 

Usage: Guidance for implementation

Audience: National Society WASH staff

Systematic Behavior Change in Water Sanitation and Hygiene – A practical guide using the RANAS (Risk, Attitude, Norms and Self Regulation) approach

Purpose:

The aim of this manual is to give practitioners a tool to help them when designing an effective behavior change campaign. The methodology is explained step by step, all necessary skills and other requirements are described, and possible pitfalls are noted.

Overview:

The Risks, Attitudes, Norms, Abilities, and Self-regulation (RANAS) approach to systematic behavior change is an established method for designing and evaluating behavior change strategies that target and change the factors influencing a specific behavior in a specific population. In brief, it is an easily applied method for measuring behavioral factors, assessing their influence on behavior, designing tailored strategies that change behavior, and measuring the effectiveness of these. Although it was originally developed to change behavior in the water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) sector in developing countries, it is applicable to a range of behaviors in various settings and populations.

The RANAS approach to systematic behavior change involves four phases:

  • Phase 1: Identify potential behavioral factors
  • Phase 2: Measure the behavioral factors and determine those steering the behavior
  • Phase 3: Select the behavior change techniques and develop appropriate behavior change strategies
  • Phase 4: Implement and evaluate the behavior change strategies

Usage: Guidance for implementation

Audience: National Society WASH staff

Southeast Asia Behavior Change Training: Risks, Attitude, Norms, Abilities and Self Regulation (RANAS) Approach | 8-9 November 2016 | Cambodia

Risks, Attitude, Norms, Abilities and Self Regulation (RANAS) training was conducted in Siem Reap, Cambodia, on 8-9 November 2016, by Swiss Red Cross, IFRC and Cambodian Red Cross.

The 2-day workshop was participated by water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) practitioners from Southeast Asian National Societies of Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Viet Nam, Philippines and IFRC.

The training course module consists of an introduction into the planning, design, and evaluation of systematic behaviour change campaigns.

The participants learned about how to conduct a quantitative survey measuring the behavioural factors, how to identify the required behaviour change techniques and how to verify their effectiveness. The course targets practitioners interested in behaviour change, especially in water, sanitation and hygiene in developing countries. The objective was achieved through lectures, practical experience from the projects, group exercises, and plenary discussions.

The Risks, Attitudes, Norms, Abilities, and Self-regulation (RANAS) approach to systematic behaviour change is an established method for designing and evaluating behaviour change strategies that target and change the factors influencing a specific behaviour in a specific population. In brief, it is an easily applied method for measuring behavioural factors, assessing their influence on behaviour, designing tailored strategies that change behaviour, and measuring the effectiveness of these.
