Our key expertise and areas of research are convened in four critical spheres:
i) survey and polls, data collection and analysis,
ii) agri-business and rural development,
iii) governance and institutional development, and
iv) monitoring and evaluation services.
These four spheres cover a wide range of sectors from social and economic policies such as pro-poor programs and interventions, economic growth stipulation, public administration and governance reform to induce private investment, environment protection and green development, pro-poor tourism, gender research, market principles and access for the poor, nutrition approaches to fight poverty, etc.
We pay special attention to investigate social, environment, and economic impacts of each research on locality, which is expected to bring about overall benefit to local people. In order to reach the overall impact, local people are encouraged to participate in the project implementation from the beginning.
Our team is recognized in terms of quantitative work and outputs over our high-profile data work with research sections of the World Bank, DFID, and international research team at IDS, University of Sussex (U.K), University of Duke (U.S) and Toulouse School of Economics (TSE), CNRS (France).
