Monitoring and evaluating

We develop monitoring and evaluation methodologies in order to help our clients understand what has worked well (or not so well), and why. We are able to provide an independent viewpoint, where it is needed, of both the performance and impact of interventions, whether this be in relation to a project/projects, a programme or at policy level.

Communicating / Dissemination

We have a number of ways in which we can assist in communicating the results and learning points from research we have undertaken. These include the generation of peer reviewed papers for dissemination through academic journals and seminar and conference presentations.
