Research output

To generate credible evidence, research and development programmes should be planned simultaneously. That’s why DLL follows development programmes from conception to completion.

Throughout all stages of a programme, we conduct rigorous research in partnership with the implementing organisation, answering questions such as:

  • How effective is the programme?
  • What are the impacts?
  • What explains successes and failures?
  • How can the programme be improved?
  • What are effective ways of scaling up?

We may also assess programme acceptability, feasibility, fidelity and adoption. We establish rapid feedback loops to enable learning along the way.
