Social Network Analysis

Social Network Analysis (SNA) is gaining traction as a useful tool to better understand who is connected to whom regarding a particular issue. For example, if a development project is facing difficulty knowing who are the key actors supporting a reform coalition or advocacy campaign, it could employ SNA techniques to identify and compare the relationships within and between these actors to plan and prioritize changes and interventions geared towards harnessing these social connections and knowledge flows within the coalition and with outsides groups or networks.

SNA is an can be useful in understanding how local systems. operate. For example, SNA was an effective approach to systemically understand HIV/AIDS referral systems in South Sudan under the USAID LINKAGES project. Through SNA, health sector actors were able to identify key blockages in the HIV/AIDS referral system for key populations, developing road maps and coordination systems to improve referral response times and awareness of referral services.

Adapt has experienced SNA facilitators that can train, mentor or carry out SNAs for development projects at any stage in the project cycle.
