Research, monitoring and evaluation

Research, monitoring and evaluation


We design and implement a variety of research projects - from national household surveys to discrete and focused programme reviews or process evaluations. Our researchers have decades of experience in quantitative and qualitative research methodologies, and of applying these in a practical way, which ensures that our findings can be confidently used by the commissioning companies and organisations.

We work with clients on the design of appropriate evaluations for their programmes, using robust methods and a cost-effective approach. We also work with clients to develop user-friendly M&E frameworks and plans, and find ways to represent routinely collected data to encourage better decision making.
