DW Angola — Research
DW’s Research Unit guides programme decision-making and policy influencing while contributing to the growth and improvement of the organisation’s learning process. The unit also enhances accountability of the organisation to its partners through promoting good quality reporting.
Research findings and lessons from DW’s own project implementation demonstrate that community-based service delivery models provide more just and equitable access and distribution of resources. Lessons from DW’s practice and research provide the basis for advocacy and policy influencing to achieve the replication of pro-poor development programmes.
Development Workshop has been engaged in ongoing research in a number of areas. These include such key issues as community survival and coping mechanisms, land tenure (helped to found the Rede de Terra - Land Network), gender and livelihoods in the informal sector, community services access and peace and conflict risks. DW has acquired a strong capacity in rapid community appraisal techniques and is one of the first institutions in Angola to build a geographic information system (GIS) into their monitoring strategies. DW publishes its research findings through its Occasional Papers series and through its Internet site.
