ABOUT OUR RESEARCH ACTIVITIES
As part of our mission to close knowledge gaps, AFRAC-INSTITUTE invests in generating evidence through research activities.
The ultimate goal is to make this evidence available to communities, actors and decision-makers, thereby allowing them to make informed decisions on investments to be made, high impact interventions to be prioritized and to measure the impact of programs and projects.
We identify partners and research subjects within our communities and carry out research projects using a community-based and participatory approach.
We capitalize on our collaboration with partner academic institutions to conduct research projects that are credible and whose results can be used in decision-making and program development.
Finally, we respect ethical principles and comply with the rigor of ethics committees of host countries and partner universities while conducting our research.
