Alma Research


Alma’s strength derives from a commitment to a research approach that is experiential, evidence-based and collaborative. Alma experts and associates have carried out a wide variety of research assignments including quantitative and qualitative research for aid across the triple nexus – humanitarian, development and peace building, including complex mixed methods research, community mapping, political economy analysis, security and conflict analysis, institutional and organizational analysis. Alma develops analytical techniques that best suit the client’s needs, and include both conventional analytical techniques, as well as cutting-edge technological options.

We develop strong relationships with local civil society organisations, influential individuals, business, government, aid and development and security professionals, key figures in religious movements, community and business leaders, as well as multiple local service firms across the countries where we operate.
We utilise online sources, using linguistically and culturally appropriate analysts, to contextualise and supplement our field research and data analysis.
