Research, monitoring & evaluation, and knowledge transfer to local counterparts
– Our research supports the design of large development programs and informs policies at the donor level. Our tools include socio-anthropological research, political economy analysis, value chains analysis, needs assessments, sector and program mapping, big data analysis and visualization tools.
– Our Monitoring and Evaluation support is built into short and long term development programs. We design M&E frameworks in line with large donors’ standards, and build real-time learning tools to improve programs all along their life cycle. We adapt traditional M&E tools to the specific context of fragile states, and integrate innovative approaches to turn M&E into an agile and adaptive tool and combine it with the best practices of knowledge management and data visualization.
– Our capacity building projects aim at building research and monitoring capacity of local counterparts, to integrate these tools into country development plans and strategies in a sustainable way. We create ad-hoc curricula and long term knowledge transfer plans for the research, statistics and M&E teams of local ministries and agencies, as well as local NGOs and independent research teams.
