Through research partnership we are able to document, evaluate and scale up our programmes to eradicate poverty. Evidence-based research also help us innovate and adapt our programmes, enabling us to more effectively reach the most marginalised and poorest communities in the countries where we work.
Research partners are institutions and organisations that through providing knowledge and evidence-based research, can shed light on some of the enablers or disablers of poverty eradication and sustainable development.
Research partnerships help us improve and expand our programmes to eradicate poverty
Such partnerships enable us to pilot, evaluate and scale up different development programmes across our countries of operation. Research allows us to innovate and inform programme development. Dissemination through academic journals and international conferences help build awareness of the impact of our work and can facilitate new donor partnerships.
We are keen to expand our network of research partners, both in Norway and internationally. Examples of current research partners include FAFO, the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU) and Makerere University in Uganda.
