Development Research

The fundamental reason for establishing GRAAM was to carryout research following the guiding principles and develop evidence for efficient planning and implementation of policies/programs. GRAAM believes in adopting 'mixed methods' and ‘community focused research’. Our research studies and participatory action research projects incorporate grassroots perspectives and ensure community (and stakeholder) engagement at various stages from inception to conclusion.
