Focus Areas

IPOR undertakes programme reviews and evaluations for projects and programmes spanning a wide range of sectors. These reviews and evaluations are intended to assess whether, and to what extent, the programmes are consistent with the expected outcomes as set out by clients. In this regard, IPOR works closely with clients in order to design programme reviews and evaluations to enable them make informed decisions about the interventions being implemented. IPOR has worked with clients to review and evaluate programmes in the health, education, livelihoods, agriculture and governance sectors. Where necessary, IPOR utilizes appropriate theoretical lenses to enable clients fully understand the overall operative context of their programmes and projects. The theoretical perspectives help to address issues that would have otherwise been simply overlooked using the traditional approaches. More specifically, IPOR’s areas of work can be distinguished into four thematic areas as follows:

 

·         Governance, Development and Management

·         Social Policy, Public Health and Livelihoods

·         Data Management and Communications

·         Short term and Professional training

Each thematic area is headed by a Team Leader, who works alongside a team of dedicated researchers. A Team Leader holds at the minimum, a Masters degree in the appropriate field.
