About Us

FIDEP Foundation seeks to empower communities, local media, and institutions by improving access to data, creating data-sharing tools and enabling decision-makers and development practitioners to work with evidence at the local level.

Policy Space: we promote bottom-up approaches to agenda setting, policy formulation, policy implementation and policy evaluation in a manner that allows local community voices to be taken into account.

Advocacy and Campaigning Space: we promote Community-Based Independent Reporting as a key means by which donors, ministries, government officials, NGOs, business community, academic community, the media and other development stakeholders can track environment and sustainable development policy with a high level of objectivity.

Research Space: We believe that evidence matters. We work with donors, government ministries and agencies, NGOs, business community, academic community, the media and other development stakeholders.

Combining interdisciplinary rigor and technical proficiency, we deliver reliable baseline studies, field-based evaluation of projects and programmes, impact assessment and risk assessment and other field-based studies that provide stakeholders with ground evidence of change.
