The Daily Activity Clock activity illustrates all the different kinds of activities carried out in one day. It is particularly useful for looking at relative workloads between different groups of people in the community, e.g. women, men, rich, poor, young and old. Comparisons between Daily Activity Clocks show who works the longest hours, who must divide their time for a multitude of activities, and who has the most leisure time and sleep. This knowledge can be very helpful during programme planning or evaluation to determine who should be targeted by what activity and assess the potential and actual impact of a programme activity on beneficiaries’ workload.
