Economic Development Initiatives: Enabling Decisions Insightfully
The EDI Group works with some of the world’s top research institutions to design, implement, manage and support a wide range of socio-economic surveys. We have a strong depth and breadth of experience in designing and conducting rigorous impact evaluations and randomised control trials on behalf of National Governments, donors and foundations and help assess international development program impacts, measure results and evaluate potential solutions to global poverty.
We have always been very passionate about using the best tools to ensure that any data we, or our clients collect is of the highest quality standards. We therefore created the market-leading Surveybe data collection software that is now used in over 55 countries worldwide.
With permanent offices in both the UK and East Africa, our teams provide expertise, evaluation and survey design services to organisations globally, and our 200+ staff in East Africa focus their efforts on collecting data on hundreds of thousands of households, enterprises, facilities and communities per annum.
