Topic: Conducting Quality Data Collection and Analysis


Think tanks play an important role in providing independent research and strong policy recommendations. However, those in the ECCAS region still face a lot of difficulty conducting quality research. This poor research performance questions the ability of these think tanks to produce high-quality research. To address this issue, one way is to build the skills of the region’s researchers. Producing high-quality research requires the use of either a quantitative or qualitative approach. Recently, qualitative research has gained recognition in various disciplines, including social sciences, health, education, and business, as it is helpful in understanding complex human phenomena. It provides in-depth insights that complement quantitative data, resulting in a holistic understanding of research topics. However, researchers often face challenges in designing, conducting, and analyzing qualitative studies due to a lack of methodological training and limited access to resources. With this in mind, the Nkafu Policy Institute, a think tank of the Denis and Lenora Foretia Foundation, is organizing a training on “Conducting Quality Data Collection and Analysis.


The objective of this training is to build a sustainable foundation for qualitative research capacity for researchers in the ECCAS region. Specifically, this training aims to:

  • Empower researchers to conduct impactful studies that contribute to the region’s development and well-being,
  • Enhance researchers’ understanding of qualitative research principles, methodologies, and ethical considerations.
  • Equip researchers with the necessary skills to conduct rigorous qualitative studies, including data collection, analysis, and interpretation.
  • Promote the integration of qualitative research findings into policy-making processes and practical applications to address regional challenges effectively.

Expected Outcomes

Enhanced proficiency of researchers in qualitative research methodologies.

Target Audience

This training  is planned for researchers, leaders from ECCAS think tanks and independent research centers, particularly women.


The training will be held virtually via the Zoom platform and will be held in French and English. It will be live-streamed on the Foretia Foundation & Nkafu Policy Institute websites and social media platforms.
