Research and Evaluation

We believe investing in rigorous research is essential to finding solutions to the world’s greatest challenges.  We provide research, analysis and evidence-based advice to help public and private sector organizations tackle some of their most important business and policy challenges. Our researchers use a broad range of econometric and data analytics to help organizations make well informed decisions about policies, programmes and projects.

Strategic Advice and Assistance

We translate research into action, promoting a culture of evidence-informed decision making.  Our policy analysis and outreach helps governments, CSOs, donors, and the private sector apply evidence from research and evaluations to their work, and contribute to public discourse around some of the most pressing questions in social policy and economic development.
