Through our collaboration with local and international agencies the FRPD research team is able to provide policy advice and participate in policy analysis and decision-making. As part of this the FRPD research team is constantly learning and exchanging ideas with other groups engaged in socio-economic research. We offer a Masters degree programme in Development Studies, which attracts public sector and private sector development practitioners. In addition, FRPD offers a sub-degree course in statistical methods for middle level technicians involved in data management and monitoring and evaluation exercises. Besides these, FRPD offers short courses on data management and proposal writing.
