We provide statistical capacity building support that will help improve the quality and availability of data for monitoring the SDGs in Nigeria.

Migration Research

The goal of the study is to provide a comprehensive understanding of the challenges and opportunities presented by migration, and identify policy solutions for sustainable development and human well-being.

Voluntary Organizations for Professional Evaluation (VOPE)

Our objective is to assist the Nigerian government and relevant stakeholders in institutionalizing VOPE through the provision of technical assistance, training to enhance capacity-building, promotion of collaboration, and advocacy to bring about policy and practice changes for effective evaluations, leading to continuous improvement in development outcomes.
