Good Honest Research



NEERMAN helps programmes deliver impacts through design and operationalisation of Monitoring & Learning (M&L) Systems. We develop M&L systems through stakeholder consultation so that the system acts as an implementation tool, and not an audit tool. We help organizations architect Android or Web platforms for their monitoring systems, and design ICT-driven accountability mechanisms. Apart from data driven M&L Systems, we also analyse monitoring data and conduct process evaluations to generate learnings for the programmes.



NEERMAN’s expertise in econometrics, biostatistics and epidemiological research 

methods enable us to conduct rigorous impact evaluations and causal inference research. We are adept at designing and implementing randomized controlled trials, matched cohort studies, quasi-experimental designs, regression discontinuity designs, and case-control studies for a range of interventions in Water-Sanitation-Hygiene, Public Health, Energy, Nutrition, Child Protection, and other sectors.



NEERMAN enables other organizations to increase social impact by building the monitoring, evaluation, and research skills of their teams. We share our knowledge and expertise with NGOs, foundations, and social enterprises through tailored workshops and personalized capacity building plans. Our senior researchers also teach research methods at leading academic institutions in India and abroad. NEERMAN also assists organisations in creating innovative and successful social programs. 


NEERMAN conducts a variety of policy research studies such as cross sectional descriptive surveys, willingness-to-pay or demand assessments, choice  or conjoint analyses, and cost-effectiveness studies. We are experts in rigorous measurement of economic, social, health, nutrition, and environmental variables using small- to large-scale statistically robust surveys. We strive to apply cutting edge statistical and economic methods including recent advances in machine learning based inference.
