We provide evidence-based policy and strategic advice on social and economic challenges to Governments, international organisations, and other development partners. We support social development and work on ageing, child rights, gender, disability and in humanitarian contexts.
We develop evidence on poverty, vulnerability and on humanitarian issues, and solutions to address them. Our analyses are always grounded in data and innovative methodologies. They inform policy dialogue and help shape social and economic programmes.
In designing cash transfer programmes, we generate practical and feasible solutions and take a rights-based approach. We have global experience in the technical and operational design of cash transfers, building blocks towards inclusive life-cycle social protection.
We install, manage and maintain management information system databases. Our MISs put people first, giving full information on entitlements. And they’re built to last, provided with source code and strengthened client capability.
We support nations to measure intervention impacts and track progress towards the global goals. Our work spans evaluability assessments, theories of change, monitoring frameworks, data collection and survey analysis, and mixed methods to evaluate programmes.
Our comparative advantage in training officials and practitioners stems from combining extensive practical experience with up-to date evidence. As part of global social protection discussions, we provide fresh perspectives and broader options.
