Development Research & Impact Assessment
- At Accord, we are constantly finding ways to improve the effectiveness of development projects. We recognize that the best outcomes are only possible when there is a critical awareness and understanding of the causal factors surrounding a problem issue. Using participatory tools and approaches, we undertake problem and situation analysis, we assess the needs of target populations and incorporate their inputs into project design.
Accord can also carry out impact assessment studies and analysis to determine the level of impact of projects, events or occurrence on the livelihood of affected populations. We also perform stakeholder analysis, we test innovative approaches, and we can prove the workability of project concepts.
We have successfully carried out regional and national scope database and projects for international development institutions such as the World Bank and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP).
