Dataset of 195 surveys with micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in sub-Saharan Africa that explore their their experiences of urban flooding (Nairobi, Kenya, n=60), water supply disruption (Gaborone, Botswana, n=57) and disruption to electricity supplies from hydroelectric load shedding (Lusaka, Zambia, n=78) during the 2015/2016 El Niño.
The surveys were conducted in August 2016 in Lusaka, in September 2016 in Nairobi, and in November 2016 in Gaborone.

Provenance & quality
The survey administered to micro, small and medium enterprises had quantitative and qualitative components, structured through a range of open and closed questions, as well as both quantitative and qualitative elements. It was designed to allow quantification, while prioritising depth and detail. The approach retained sufficient flexibility to permit the emergence of unanticipated findings and it was intended to allow research informants to construct a meaningful characterization of their experience of El Niño associated disruption and its challenges for their business.
