Research is a fundamental first step toward designing successful development projects, as it gives important insights into the political, socio-economic and environmental context in which projects will be implemented. Research helps fine-tune development projects to the realities on the ground, as well as ensure that resources are used effectively to achieve maximum impact.
All of AFD’s activities are grounded in sound research, allowing the organization to gain the knowledge necessary to develop, design and enhance its products, services and processes – to become innovative – in the ever evolving development landscape. In Southern Africa, AFD has partnered with centers of study and research, universities and institutes of higher learning, and innovation centers to work collaboratively on ground-breaking research projects.
