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.

Poverty and Inequality Analysis

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.

Policy Research

Our researchers are dedicated to conduct policy-oriented research on various development issues that affect people’s welfare in its multidimensionality.

Monitoring & Evaluation

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.
