Monitoring & Evaluation
Much of iDC’s work is concerned with carrying out M&E assignments. Its consultants have expertise and experience of quantitative and qualitative approaches to conducting surveys and assessing the impact of humanitarian and development interventions.
From its inception, assignments related to development communication have been core activities of iDC. For numerous clients in many different countries the company’s consultants have facilitated the formulation of a wide variety of communication strategies, designed civic education programmes and public awareness materials.
iDC Consultants have carried out a variety of research assignments over the 25 years the company has been operating. Examples include baseline studies in the three administrations of Somalia for the UN Joint Programmes of Local Governance (JPLG), and with Tana Copenhagen a study of the ‘gatekeepers’ in Mogadishu’s IDP camps.
Training & Capacity Development
Throughout the years iDC has been involved in the design and delivery of capacity development programmes and the production of training materials. A particular concern has been to promote participatory and experiential modes of training.
Project & Programme Management
DC has been involved in numerous programme formulation initiatives. Its consultants are familiar with logframe and ‘theory of change’ approaches to project design. The company also has the resources for project and programme management.
