What we do
International development research and evidence often lacks the participation of southern practitioners who work directly with communities living in poverty - and the views of those communities themselves. We aim to change that.
- in partnership to create spaces for southern knowledge
- for communities, and those living in poverty, to be involved in the generation of research and evidence relevant to them
- to produce and support high-quality ethical research and evidence on poverty, to contribute new approaches to tackling and eradicating it
- to guide evidence use and learning, and strengthen technical knowledge related to research, evidence, impact and engagement - all through online materials, tools and training courses
- to influence wider debates in the development sector, to improve how programmes and policy work is designed and delivered
Learning from working in partnership
These Christian Aid reports share learning from decades of close collaboration with local and national organisations in Angola, Brazil, Ghana, Guatemala, South Africa and the Philippines.
We're supporting research projects in a number of countries, and related to a range of themes:
- 'Building Alternatives' is a project gathering evidence to build a feminist agroecological model in Brazil
- The Evidence and Collaboration for Inclusive Development (ECID) project aims to reduce poverty, realise rights and improve the well-being of the most marginalised in Myanmar, Nigeria and Zimbabwe
