Areas of Expertise
We specialize in poverty analysis, policy research, and monitoring and evaluation. These three interconnected elements of knowledge production are directed to support evidence-based policy formulation that works for Indonesia's poorest and most vulnerable people.
We use participatory, qualitative, quantitative, and mixed-method approaches to conduct poverty assessment and analysis, focusing on income and non-income dimensions of deprivation and the determining factors.
Our researchers are dedicated to conduct policy-oriented research on various development issues that affect people’s welfare in its multidimensionality.
We conduct independent monitoring and evaluation of development policies and programs to assess their impact on the well-being and livelihood of Indonesia’s poor and the vulnerable communities, and to support learning processes.
