Surveys and Assessments

DIG conducts baseline studies, market assessments and sectoral assessments under ongoing programs or as independent projects. Market assessments focus most notably on supply, demand, and capacity to pay for financial services. Sectoral assessments typically focus on WASH, solid waste management, housing, and microfinance sectors. Baseline studies provide a solid evidence base for data underlying results indicators design. These constitute our program foundations. Initiatives where we have conducted recent market or sectoral market assessments include SUWASA and KIWASH in Kenya and WCP in Nigeria. See our WCP assessment as an example of DIG’s work available to the public.
