Evidence for Development has been working with the University of Malawi, Chancellor College (Dept of Economics) since 2007. This partnership has established a model for establishing national and regional centres of expertise in household economy assessment and modelling, and for training the next generation of African researchers and innovators.
Evidence for Development has established an open-source software development project at Chancellor College (Dept of Mathematical Sciences). This project will allow free and open access to powerful analytical software using Evidence for Development’s individual household method (IHM). It will also establish a centre of excellence at Chancellor College in the globally sought after skills of open source collaborative development.
