Please join Feed the Future on May 28th at 10 AM ET as they kick off their PRCI Webinar Series with a webinar on conducting survey research in the time of lockdowns and beyond.

To flatten the curve and prevent further escalation of the spread of COVID-19, universities, and research institutions around the world have suspended all research activities that are not necessary to sustain or protect life. As a result, field research involving interactions with human subjects has come to a standstill. In a time when data and evidence are most needed to make informed policy and programmatic decisions, researchers are unable to do primary data collection. If you are an international development researcher and are feeling helpless about this situation, don’t; thanks to the increasing penetration of affordable mobile phones in developing countries, you can still do some meaningful and timely research while working from home. To learn more, register below for an upcoming webinar on the best practices for conducting mobile phone survey research.
