Research and analysis

MCS works to produce evidence based findings that will directly inform policy and facilitate practical actions. We use relevant and appropriate research tools with a special emphasis on qualitative analysis in order to allow our clients to understand complex insights beyond numbers.


MCS also manages research projects that can be implemented with its network of partners in South Asia, Africa and the UK. MCS does this in conjunction with its pool of research, policy experts and practitioners in these regions who offer first-level understanding of issues from a local or sectoral perspective.


Applied research is crucial for relevant and inclusive development actions and policies. We link rigorous research to policy and practice so that can be applied in practice to real life issues. We recognize the need for robust research to effectively measure and understand the impact of projects and policies. Research is also important to understand social and economic context, user behaviour patterns and needs.
