Our analytical approach

We combine a rigorous evidence-based approach with our practical experience to produce leading thinking that supports the design and shaping of policies which will enable change where it’s needed most. Bridging the gap between evidence and practice is what makes us a valued organization. We ensure that we ask the right questions and tailor our study to what is most essential. We are dedicated to maintaining the high quality of our work, and combine targeted insights with delivery, following up with robust monitoring and evaluation. We plan our work for the long term, learn from real-world effects, and build capacity through learning by doing. We reflect, we learn, we act; we consider these parts of our work to be inseparable. We share the lessons of our work in the projects that we deliver, and also through the research and thinking that we publish, whether in leading academic journals or through our own publications.
