Capacity Building and Knowledge Dissemination
Another essential component of our work is to assist local partners in building their internal capacity to use quantitative and qualitative research tools. To this end, we offer technical support to local partners and policymakers on how to use our interactive social policy tools and web applications. We also provide trainings in quantitative and qualitative research design and impact evaluation methods.
For knowledge dissemination, where appropriate, we make the outputs of our research publicly available in the form of policy reports, reference books, and published academic articles made available through our website and disseminated through seminars. Our working paper series and young scholars seminar series provide venues for public discussion around social policy issues, while providing a platform for researchers to present their academic work.
