This document shares considerations for planning formative research within USAID Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA)-funded Resilience and Food Security Activities (RFSAs) within the Refinement period. Formative research plans in this period typically aim to generate practical and timely findings across multiple studies to fill information gaps and guide the design of social and behavior change (SBC) programming. SBC is the systematic application of iterative, theory-based, and research-driven processes and strategies for promoting change at the individual, community, and society levels.
