One coder suggested that the entire focus of the project was community resilience and, by implication, engaged multiple facets of psychosocial wellbeing. Interestingly, during interview the PI interrogated the concept of resilience stating that “different people have different ideas of what resilience means and resilience to me does incorporate some mental health long-term impact.” The other coder indicated that the project engaged implicitly with the psychosocial wellbeing of target groups by using a social learning approach to map the ways vulnerable communities have access to climate information and share knowledge amongst themselves, how outcomes highlight the relationships between power and poverty, and how poor people, particularly women, suffer exclusion. The PI also reflected on a previous project illuminating these connections and giving him pause for thought about his role as researcher: “the reason they weren’t interested in the long-term, the seasonal forecasts was because the women-headed households were the last in the pecking order to be able to use the communal ploughs. So knowing what the seasonal forecast was going to be actually was depressing for them […] so I sometimes wonder that I might not even be aware of some of the impacts I have on people.”
Both coders agreed that, had only minor changes been made to the project, there were opportunities to secure all three types of social wellbeing impacts, one stating it is likely that the project did facilitate community-building, support community mobilisation, and preserve sociocultural identity via their social networks approach, although this was not a target outcome and no data were reported.
