Promoting democratic space for marginalized communities in oil-producing areas of Tunisia

Perception survey in Tataouine and Kebili

Public Polling and focus group: Invitation to Submit Proposals



Promoting democratic space for marginalized communities in oil-producing areas of Tunisia is a four-year project funded by the United Nations Democracy Fund (UNDEF) and implemented by the Natural Resource Governance Institute (NRGI). The project aims to support a peaceful democratic transition in Tunisia by bridging the gap between the government and marginalized oil-producing communities of Tataouine and Kebili. Through quantitative and qualitative research and technical and financial support, NRGI will establish and empower local civil society networks to engage in community and government consultations for region-specific roadmaps addressing oil-producing communities’ grievances. The networks will also be to hold the government accountable through follow-up meetings to monitor the implementation of government commitments.

Purpose statement:

This project seeks to advance an evidence basis to inform policy makers and public opinion about citizen priorities in Tataouine and Kebili. In addition, this research seeks to involve partner CSO networks in the elaboration of research and the drawing of ensuing thematic areas for further intervention. 

NRGI is seeking a consultancy firm to develop and conduct a perception survey targeting a representative sample of the Tataouine and Kebili population. The firm will closely coordinate with NRGI and its partner CSO networks with the aim of developing the capacity of CSO beneficiaries to undertake  research and draw on research findings for advocacy. This will enable the project to be informed by the concerns and priorities of the local communities while supporting CSO partner efforts. 

Survey scope:


The sample size for the study should be at least 500 participants from each of Tataouine and Kebili. Representative sampling
techniques should be utilized to ensure that the survey sample accurately reflects the characteristics of the larger population. All collected data must be disaggregated by sex, age, socio-economic status, and geographic area. All results statements must also be gender sensitive. 

Study Indicators:

In order to respond to the specific objectives of the study, below are the indicators that require the consultant to provide data.
