Social Research and Evaluation

Our Approach and Services

 

 

We apply formative and/ or summative analysis of the design, implementation, results, impacts and sustainability of a project or policy.

 

We use different data collection methods such as desk review, participatory methods, interviews, focus groups and surveys. This approach of data triangulation ensures cross-checking data from multiple sources and allows coming up with valid and objective evaluation results. The collected data is then analysed with descriptive and econometric tools.


Throughout the whole evaluation process we place great value on quality assurance. In many of our assignments we design and implement online-based monitoring and information systems.

 

We draw evidence-based conclusions and recommendations for policy-makers. These practical recommendations aim at contributing to informed policy-making and improved quality and impact in public policy interventions.
