Rural Household Multi-Indicator Survey (RHoMIS)

Rural Household Multi-Indicator Survey (RHoMIS) is a household survey tool designed to rapidly characterise a series of standardised indicators across the spectrum of agricultural production and market integration, nutrition, food security, poverty and greenhouse gas emissions. These indicators can provide an understanding of the impacts of existing land use options, farm management practices and/or farm strategies on ‘climate smartness’. By assessing household scores on each indicator, a measure of achievement towards climate smart agriculture (CSA) goals can be derived. The logic of this process is represented in the figure. RHoMIS is constructed in a modular way, with each module collecting the information needed to be able to calculate the performance indicator of interest. New indicators of interest to the user can therefore be added easily. Read more about RHoMIS in work by Hammond et al. (2017).
