This scoping project examines a system-wide landscape of the social sciences research, using the “Doing Research Assessment” to understand, map and assess structural barriers and opportunities to strengthening policy relevant social research. GDN in collaboration with CESD conduct two separate assessments (2019 and 2021) collecting baseline data collection, analysis, validation and dissemination. This assessment not only serves as baseline measurements for other grantees, but also informs the program strategy and direction.
