Gathering evidence and learning through an alternative process of testing with randomized control trials (RCTs) pilots, monitoring data, and other methods that help illustrate what works to improve urban refugee livelihoods.
There is very little research about what livelihoods services work for urban refugees, and how to improve social cohesion in the cities that refugees and hosts share. Our research aims to build evidence in four (4) areas that have promising, but limited evidence:
- Whether certain interventions are more or less effective for refugees.
- The impact of different delivery models.
- The impact of building social networks for refugees.
- The impact of livelihoods programs on social cohesion.
What we learn is shared widely and used to adjust the services as we deliver.
